Will you use Debian GNU/kfreebsd "Squeeze" for its ability to have zfs without fuse?

What we want is ZFS on a LINUX kernel!

I can't see any compelling advantage for me to want to use zfs, with fuse or without. Luckily I guess that means I don't have any demanding filesystems to look after at the moment; it's either plain RAID-1 for simplicity, RAID-6 with LVM for midrange, or proper SAN.

Been using ZFS on fuse. ZFS is amazing, fuse not so much. It works, but CPU usage is high and I don't see consistent results when rebooting. Kernel level ZFS should help a lot.

I am looking at ZFS, but I don't think that GNU/KFreebsd is ready for prodution use, what about the ZFS module for Linux Kernel ?!?

If you want ZFS on Linux (legally) you will have to ask Oracle. Sun went out of their way to make ZFS incompatible with the Linux kernel.

Now that Oracle own Sun you can't tell what will happen. On paper Oracle are more Linux leaning than Sun were, so they should allow ZFS into Linux, BUT they now own Solaris and have proved to be less than friendly to the open-source community when there is money to be made. Plus they are working on btrfs which is in Linux and they previously claimed was superior so you could argue that ZFS isn't required...

Who knows! If ZFS is good then Oracle should keep it alive as long as people are willing to pay for Solaris. If Oracle think Linux is the future then their best option is to port it into Linux and let ZFS/btrfs merge/complete...

There should have been will you install it and play with it, but will stick linux kernel for real work. I think its great to have the option, but I'll stick with linux kernel for now.

Would love to see more programs compiled for bsd variants...and if debian provides support i can't ask for more! Can't wait for the release!
