Too bad. ZFS was a great file system. But just look at the perils of adopting it today.
As part of the background, NetApp is suing Sun for patent infringement by ZFS, with Sun counter-suing, and Oracle is buying Sun. The Oracle acquisition has raised doubt over the future status of ZFS, and it’s possible that it may just disappear, becoming a foot note in IT history.
Apple is looking for a file system engineer, by the way.
