Something exciting may be going on. Jeff Bonwick, storage expert and leader of the ZFS team at Sun has posted pictures from a seemingly informal meeting with Linus Torvalds on his blog. Sr Program Manager at Sun, Jim Grisanzio also links to the pictures in a blog post of his own titled “ZFS Pics“.
Does this imply that the Jesus of file systems for serious storage needs may be ported to a near future version of the Linux kernel, despite the current licensing issues?
