The amount of work needed to get a complex storage stack up to production quality is mind blowing, .


I agree, it's an incredible amount of work, that's why I hate to see all this effort expended on a project that will never likely be accepted by most of the Linux community.

It would really be fantastic if it could be, but I doubt Oracle will ever change. In fact it would not surprise me if they close sourced zfs like they did with Solaris.

They did, but the cat's out of the bag now. Open-source ZFS is now being developed here: http://illumos.org/

If it's open source, we'll fork it and reduce number of devs in any given project!
