Linux "There has been work by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories in porting ZFS to Linux as a native Linux kernel module. This LLNL ZFS work though is incomplete but still progressing due to a US Department of Energy contract. It is though via this work that developers in India at KQ Infotech have made working a Linux kernel module for ZFS. In this article are some new details on KQ Infotech's ZFS kernel module and our results from testing out the ZFS file-system on Linux."

"we don't have a test system that's at all representative of what people who need ZFS would be using."

That won't stop some people from using ZFS, anyway. They'll use it simply because they can.

Still, the benchmarks are useless. They even pass judgement on ZFS using them.

It's like saying Winodws 7 isn't ready, because it runs like crap on my system that has only 512MB of RAM.
