Default ZFS on Linux is "ready for wide scale deployment

From http://h-online.com/-1832848

Developer Brian Behlendorf has announced the release of version 0.6.1 of the native ZFS on Linux port. After over two years in experimental status, the developers now say the file system "is ready for wide scale deployment on everything from desktops to super computers." The native ZFS on Linux is based on the Solaris Porting Layer (SPL) which emulates underlying features of Solaris in the Linux kernel.

In contrast to the FUSE (Filesystem in USErspace) implementation of ZFS, the native port delivers better performance by implementing the filesystem as a kernel module.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

This is a `community port' of Oracle's ZFS. In the meanwhile, Oracle is developing btrfs as the next-gen Linux filesystem, which does, as far as I understand it, pretty much the same things as ZFS, except that it's GPL instead of CDDL. btrfs is also considered unstable even after almost 6 years of development.

So, why is Oracle developing btrfs? `Not invented here'? That seems strange, since both filesystems originate at Sun/Oracle. Licence issue? That also seems strange for the same reasons ...
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
