DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2011-04
This post has me so perplexed, I just have to explore further.

You are apparently talking about random people at some local club. Why
is their preference of filesystem impacting your intention to try out
Hammer? What makes their opinion so special?
Yes, I understand that. I'm looking forward to doing something with
Hammer, but I've spoken to a couple of guys at the local Users group
who swear they'll never use anything else but ZFS
Who is "they"? DragonFly community?
- got it running on
FreeBSD and I looked at Dragonfly with UFS and Hammer and thought with
ZFS they'd have every scenario covered.
Linux is working to incorporate ZFS compatibility into the kernel,
No, "Linux" is not. As long as ZFS has the CDDL license, it won't be
incorporated into the kernel. People are working on putting ZFS in a
module that users can manually load in to work around license issues.
It's not a technical incompatibility, it's a license incompatibility for
which there is no solution other than Oracle changing the ZFS license.
Again, why is Linux filesystem situation relevant to DragonFly?
even with various filesystem developers looking at substantial jail
sentences for killing their wives, they've still got an over abundance
How does Linux having too many filesystems (in your opinion) relate to
DragonFly not having ZFS? I'm not following any logic train.
What? There's going to be a delay in your learning C because of which
It's going to have to wait for a while before I learn C then.
A) Reiser was convicted of killing his wife
B) Linux has too many filesystems
C) Linux is putting ZFS in the kernel
D) Random people in local user groups swear by ZFS
E) Nobody is bothering to import ZFS to DragonFly.

It's certainly possible. Nobody's working on it right now, to my
knowledge. I'm more interesting in seeing Hammer grow, so I'm not
that concerned about it.

I understand the availability of UFS and Hammer in the Dragonfly
environment, but is ZFS possible, or are there any plans to facilitate it
