    If you want a GNU userland with a FreeBSD kernel, then Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is your only choice. Gentoo FreeBSD uses a FreeBSD userland.

    You could always switch to Gentoo Linux or Gentoo FreeBSD. We have ZFS on both platforms.

    This in itself prevents you from making actionable criticism and quite frankly, your post reads as an attack post, but I will say one thing about memory management. The out of memory issues that...

    Originally, userland programs were able to read/write to any location in system memory. The introduction of virtual memory enabled by Memory Management Units changed that and had rather significant...

    I have been informed by the btrfs developers that these two points are wrong. The checksums are CRC32C on all platforms, which make them weaker than I thought. Also, btrfs does have ditto blocks and...

    This did not quite answer the question. I will have to write more on this tomorrow. I have been responding to questions since the blog post launched and I am ready to call it a day.

    I think that you have OSS projects confused. ZFSOnLinux and ZFS-FUSE are separate projects. ZFSOnLinux is a kernel space driver while ZFS-FUSE is a user space driver. The ZFS-FUSE project's...

    This should not be comparable by virtue of not having ECC RAM. Typically only the workstation and compute cards have this.

    genkernel should make this easy. You can even provide your own .config, which it will use if it does not have an existing one cached in /etc/kernels.

    The IOMMU is a technical term that AMD uses while VT-d is Intel's marketing term. It does need to be enabled in the BIOS. You can check dmesg to see if it is on. It will sometimes break poorly...

    The purpose of the blog post was not to claim that ZoL has just become production ready, but to provide an explanation why ZoL is production ready. There was a severe deficit of information on this...

    I hope that Michael will address the issues that were present in his previous ZoL benchmarks:

    It is called execve(2). If the new process fails to start, the kernel panics. sysvinit is not much better in this regard because a bad update will break the system there too. However, being...

    Would you define the problem? If the problem involves bundled libraries, I believe that proper use of dpkg solved that problem on Linux distributions about 20 years ago. The solution has since been...

    I think you have an off by one error in your reasoning. The GPLv3 includes patent grants, but the kernel license is GPLv2. You could always read the license to confirm that.

    For what it is worth, the characterization of systemd is partially inaccurate. While it dramatically increaees the code in PID 1, the total amount of code that it places there is small in comparison...
