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.

Oracle already discontinued paid support for OpenSolaris, there is now only proprietary Solaris 10 on their agenda.


FUD! OpenSolaris support is still available today and in the future!

That is true. OpenSolaris FUD is everywhere. OpenSolaris is the basis for Solaris 11. If OpenSolaris is killed, how will Oracle deliver Solaris 11? Everyone agrees that Solaris 11 will be delivered, how is that possible if all OpenSolaris code is scrapped? Some people dont think at all, or they are just plain FUDers.
