Eric Schrock, a Solaris kernel programmer, said on his blog in April that he's "completely redesigning the ZFS commands from the ground up" after finding some deficiencies.

Shaman wanted Gigabit Ethernet drivers, well according to what I read Broadcom 57xx drivers are available for Solaris x86, Linux, and even for SCO Unix. And who in the hell would use a Winmodem? Why would Sun or the vendor of a Winmodem even bother writing drivers for Solaris?

If you are going to complain about hardware support, let's be realistic. If I remember correctly, even Linux had problems with Winmodems. I could very easily come up with some piece of hardware that one in a thousand people would use and mindlessly bitch about no support for it with a particular OS. Not every OS, not even Linux is a panacea of hardware support.
