- If you don't want to use it, don't want to muck around with the license, fine ...
- But don't dis a FS that has been solving important problems for a few YEARS in production even before btrfs was being written.
Perfect summarization there. As a tech person, we could get biased into dissing other people's tech. But I feel that where it's due, one needs to give credit.
Historic aside: ZFS is 14+ years old, launched in November 2005. It's sort of a feature-parallel version of WAFL but eventually open sourced to the world with OpenSolaris in 2008. I used to work in NetApp when it came out and I was like, whoa. NetApp and Sun share a lot of history.
