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.

My point is, Linux is what Windows was, it is where the applications are being developed.

I know Linux is just trying to implement everything the OpenSolaris-based systems already had for years:

ZFS - btrfs
Zones - LXC, SELinux, SecComp2, usernamespaces, cgroups, etc.
DTrace - System Tap, etc.
