General Development

ZFS is the world's most advanced filesystem, in active development for over a decade. Recent development has continued in the open, and OpenZFS is the new formal name for this open community of developers, users, and companies improving, using, and building on ZFS. Founded by members of the Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and illumos communities, including Matt Ahrens, one of the two original authors of ZFS, the OpenZFS community brings together over a hundred software developers from these platforms.

ZFS plays a major role in Solaris, of course, but beyond that, has it found other major homes? In fact, now that we're at it, how is Solaris doing anyway?

"IANAL but I don't trust Wikipedia on legal stuff either

Too bad for you that Wikipedia provides a link to an Ogg Theora recording, where you can actually *listen* Cooper stating what mentioned above.
"

And in the illumos homepage there is a talk by Bryan Cantrill, who co-authored the CDDL, saying what Denise Cooper said is not true.
