I think your personal definition of "production ready" is very different
from that of most folks WRT their production servers. Case in point,
"The ZFS code can be modified to build as a CDDL licensed kernel module
which is not distributed as part of the Linux kernel. This makes a
Native ZFS on Linux implementation possible if you are willing to
download and build it yourself."
Carefully note the last sentence. Most SAs aren't going to be
comfortable with such a situation, for many glaringly obvious reasons.
As long as it's tied to the CDDL, requires manual installation, and has
no support from distros (RedHat/SuSE), ZFS Linux will never be
production ready, at least not for the majority.
