Linux A recent discussion on the lkml examined the possibility of a Linux implementation of Sun's ZFS. It was pointed out that the file system is released under the GPL-incompatible CDDL, and that Sun has filed numerous patents to prevent ZFS from being reverse engineered. Max Yudin pointed out, "according to Jeff Bonwick's blog Sun issued 56 patents on ZFS, but I have no idea what they patented. Sorry, binary compatible ZFS reimplementation with GPL license might not be legal."

Can you put the / partition on ZFS using FUSE?

If not, seems pretty useless to me.

You could always create a smaller partition - EXT3 or any other supported file system - to host /boot and leave the rest of / to ZFS Fuse... That ought to do the trick
