Linux Employees of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have ported Sun's/Oracle's ZFS natively to Linux. Linux already had a ZFS port in userspace via FUSE, since license incompatibilities between the CDDL and GPL prevent ZFS from becoming part of the Linux kernel. This project solves the licensing issue by distributing ZFS as a separate kernel module users will have to download and build for themselves.

True, NTFS-3G uses FUSE, but only so it can run unmodified on a multitude of systems. It doesn't, however, use any proprietary Windows DLLs, like ZFS on FUSE uses proprietary Sun code.
