Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Some key features that Sun was touting last year for the Solaris 10 platform are still missing in action. The two most important are the Project Janus Linux runtime environment and the ZFS file system. While there has been much speculation that Sun will withdraw support for Project Janus, this is not the case.

ZFS + Linux

The CDDL is not compatible with the GPL so you'll almost certainly never see ZFS included in the official kernel tree.

Maybe not in the official kernel tree, but couldn't it be available as a seperate package that when installed compiles a set of kernel modules?

Yes, you as an individual could install it as a module.

My line of thinking was that the fact that it can't be part of the kernel proper immediately limits it's chance of becoming a player in Linux filesystems. Not that Sun would particularly care about that particular outcome.
