Linux "Remember KQ Infotech? KQ Infotech was the Indian company that ported the ZFS file-system to Linux as an out-of-tree kernel module (after deriving the code from the LLNL ZFS Linux work) and KQ's interesting methods of engagement in our forums. The company was successful in delivering an open-source ZFS module for Linux that performed semi-well and didn't depend upon FUSE (the file-systems for user-space module) like other implementations. However, this ZFS Linux code appears to no longer be worked on by KQ Infotech."

Personally I found the tooling of btrfs terrible to use compared to zfs. So only in that sense it's still miles behind zfs.

Also zfs's send and receive are also missing.

Don't get me wrong I love the btrfs effort and I'll probably switch to btrfs instead of zfs. (as you still need to run solaris for any serious use, or deal with the ancient fbsd version)

But I hope that by that time the tools will be a lot more friendly to use then there now.

Besides all the technical features, this is one of the major benefits of zfs imho.
