Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Is ZFS dead?

manuelmagic writes: When I heard of ZFS for the first time in 2009 I was astonished about the idea: a new and innovative file system that could finally take the place of the old HFS+ used by Mac OS X, the platform I was using at the time. Then Apple silently dropped the announced support in Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server and ZFS never really make it to the big public. I don't know if it's about the Oracle License, the slow development, if ZFS has already lost the features-performances war with Btrfs or something else but I'm curious to know if we will ever see it for real on our linux or BSD boxes alongside ext4 or Btrfs.
