ZFS is a fine FS that's for sure. As a Linux guy, I have not used myself though and have a question.

About the checksum, if something is not correctly stored on the disk (lets say I save an ODF file), how is the end user informed of the problem? Assuming a hardware problem, what will ZFS do to avoid writing to that sector again? I mean, what is the level of interactivity and robustness of the checksum system to make it useful to say desktop users?
