Linux "Remember KQ Infotech? KQ Infotech was the Indian company that ported the ZFS file-system to Linux as an out-of-tree kernel module (after deriving the code from the LLNL ZFS Linux work) and KQ's interesting methods of engagement in our forums. The company was successful in delivering an open-source ZFS module for Linux that performed semi-well and didn't depend upon FUSE (the file-systems for user-space module) like other implementations. However, this ZFS Linux code appears to no longer be worked on by KQ Infotech."

Well, this was obvious when KQ Infotech was bought by STEC. This company is mainly known for providing SSD for Sun/Oracle ZFS appliances. It was obvious that STEC was used as proxy by Oracle to stop KQ work on ZFS.

So are you saying that Oracle bought the company to stop work on ZFS? So, every company that works on porting the CDDL open sourced ZFS, will be bought by ORacle?
