There is no doubt that this is an achievement from a technical standpoint, but because of the license mess, I doubt that very many will use it.

I guess that no distro is permitted to distribute a kernel with zfs. I really doubt Oracle will change the lisense ever, I think the cddl was specifically written to be Gpl incompatible.

Sadly I think their effort would have been better spent on making btrfs better.
