Linux "F2FS is a new file system carefully designed for the NAND flash memory-based storage devices. We chose a log structure file system approach, but we tried to adapt it to the new form of storage. Also we remedy some known issues of the very old log structured file system, such as snowball effect of wandering tree and high cleaning overhead."

And what is the deal with linux and ZFS? Why not use the best fs?

The existing kernel-level implementation is under CDDL which is GPL-incompatible and the abstract filesystem itself is covered by software patents that not even pre-Oracle Sun was eager to share.
