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)."

There is no such thing as a patented software. Patents cover methods and software patents are almost all trivial methods. Technically every single software violates hundreds of patents. ZFS is no more patented than vfat (See Microsoft vs TomTom litigation) or any other file system.
