That's true and as it stands, licensing issues mean it won't be a kernel filesystem in linux. However, ZFS works fine using the fuse module. I use ZFS as a common filesystem for backup.

Afaik, ufs2 is read only under linux, write support is available but the module isn't built by default and it's listed as 'dangerous'. > > /Andreas > > -- > A: Because it fouls the order in which people normally read text. > Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing? > A: Top-posting. > Q: What is the most annoying thing on usenet and in e-mail? > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
