    Does actually anyone use ZFS ? Whenever I read about ZFS I have to think about "dead code" within the Linux Kernel.

      I think you mean ghost code within the Linux kernel. Or invisible code.

        You need to rethink. ZFS is NOT in Linux Kernel, and unlikely it ever be.

            ZFS is an out-of-tree module.

              Pretty much all Linux distros these days tend to utilize systemd to TRIM-spam partitions DURING the boot process, making OS bootup once in a week take 5 to 10 minutes. All accompanied by a black screen, no status indicator, so only after hunting logs do you realize the thing was TRIMming your partitions 1000 times in the middle of the OS boot process. Windows partitions included, of course, because f... you, dual-booters.

              All these lovely things are coming to ZFS users, so welcome to the party of sitting 10 minutes at a black screen just to get a chance to log in. Yeah, TRIM is a good and useful feature. It should never ever be done in the middle of an OS boot process. F... systemd and all distributions that allow this.

                Yes, there are people that are using ZoL quite extensively.

                  Systemd's claim to fame was that it will make bootup faster ...

                  Now doing another thing it should not be doing.

                    Yes, I use it here. I trust it more than Btrfs and and prefer the overall structure of how its used and managed.
