I wish that the Linux developers considered it as well, especially now that the Reiser4 future is totally unknown.

I wish it too, but if something has not changed since the last time i checked, there were licensing problem in including ZFS code within the Linux kernel.

However, there is a good working implementation of ZFS for FUSE to be used with Linux.

It is still in beta stage, and it will never be like having it in the kernel, however is a very interesting project.

I think that if the license of ZFS change, it won't be too hard to have ZFS in the kernel thanks to the work that Ricardo Correia is doing with ZFS on FUSE.
