ZFS on Linux

[ Listen to article ]

This is why I avoid zfs - at least on Linux. Lots of people say I’m paranoid; that the issue has been decided, but it clearly hasn’t.

I get that it has a lot of benefits. I’m currently working on a FreeBSD based project where zfs will be really beneficial. And I’ve used it before on Solaris.

And the alternatives on Linux (btrfs primarily) still seem too unstable for my liking. I do know people using it, but I don’t like being an fs guinea pig.
