Debian and its clones "ZFS will be supported in Debian Squeeze using the official installer. This means that Debian Squeeze will be one of the first GNU distributions to support ZFS. In fact, even though ZFS support didn't make it to Debian-Installer beta1 by the time it was released, it is now available in the netboot images (this happens because netboot images fetch newer installer components from the internet)."

Unfortunately you were mislead into thinking kFreeBSD was any kind of stable. Lower your expectations. It is a test bench, not a desktop.

Being frozen and nearly ready for a "stable" release, it sure seemed like it was about time it started to become stable. Usually when a Debian stable is released, it *is* stable, and they're trying to get kFreeBSD officially released for 6.0--and it's frozen. Yeah, apparently I was wrong. Unless they fix a lot of bugs and work on both the stability and performance of the distro, I really don't know how Debian plans to get kFreeBSD ready for its first release, it just seems pretty far behind.

It's ironic that I was modded down. Did people never try Debian kFreeBSD for themselves, and are just modding down based on the fact that they're Debian fans and apparently can't stand to hear anything bad about Debian? Just stating the facts--that stuff really did happen, and it seemed to be in rapid-fire succession (ie. all within 15-20 minutes or so). Not a very pleasant experience. If you don't believe it... try it yourself. You might be surprised. I definitely was.

I tried the testing version of the Linux version of Debian 6 quite a while back (before the freeze), and it ran pretty good by comparison.
