I think it's important to be realistic here though. Folks really into Linux and GPL software are not going to ever accept ZFS because of the license. Those folks also will not run debian with a FreeBSD kernel.

It just makes more sense to run FreeBSD or Solaris if you want ZFS. The only use case I can think of is if you do gaming and want to use ZFS for storage. That would require a Linux kernel due to the video driver situation in BSD.
