Legal In October 2006, Hans Reiser, creator of the ReiserFS filesystem, was arrested under the suspicion of the murder of his wife, Nina, who had disappeared off the face of the earth after dropping their two children off at Hans' home. The two were divorced, and fighting a legal battle over ownership of the Namesys company and the custody of their children. Even though the body was never found, he has been declared guilty of first degree murder.

Is there any news on a ZFS implementation for Linux? I thought there was some licensing issue and couldn't be implemented.

The ZFS license isn't compatible with Linux's GPL licence.

As I understand it, this only means ZFS support can't be written into the Linux kernel. However, ZFS support can run outside of the kernel using a bridge called FUSE.
