Linux "Today the ZFS on Linux project reached an important milestone with the official 0.6.1 release! Over two years of use by real users has convinced us ZoL is ready for wide scale deployment on everything from desktops to super computers."

Even with generalization, I'm not so sure it's close or a lot more than half off all the engineers.

Generalisations don't have to be based on majority case scenarios (and usually aren't). I certainly wasn't implying that all or even the majority of engineers felt that way. In fact I deliberately avoided any such estimations as it would be grossly presumptuous of me to guess such a figure.

To be frank, I'm starting to get a little frustrated because my whole argument that spawning this cyclic debate was that some Sun engineers didn't want to see their code "stolen" by the Linux community. Nothing more. Now I appreciate that I've not explained that point as well as I could have, but you're equally leaping to quite a number of assumptions (I don't know if it's because you want to find counter arguments to my arguments or if it is just an explanation and interpretation issue. but either way you keep raising objections to statements I've never made - such as you objection to the claim I never made about the quantity of engineers or about whether they had authority to make the final decision).

And we can't be sure if that is true, that is why I think people should stop talking about it like it's the only truth.

Except that we do know it's true because several Sun employees have stated so. What's often argued is whether those sentiments were what led to the incompatibilities in the final version of CDDL. However my point was never about CDDL but instead about the engineers sentiments (CDDL was only referenced to give context to the anecdote). So the reasoning behind CDDL is completely irrelevant in the context of this discussion.

Anyway, let's get back to the original point.

Let me know when the port nova-compute from OpenStack to OpenSolaris based systems is done. Or when someone starts with a Ceph port. Running cluster pairs is starting to look a bit to much like a hassle.

People would love to see these things, still they haven't happend. 1 or 2 people did work on an OpenStack port to one of the OpenSolaris based system.

A port to FreeBSD which also has ZFS and DTrace would be very welcome too.

Even better (for us) would be if it is a Debian based OS like Debian/kFreeBSD or Nextena OS.

Whatever mate. I'm not getting into an OS flamewar with a Linux fanboy.

This tangent was about ZFS vs Btrfs not all the other prejudices you have against non-Linux platforms.
