      Any news about it possibly ever running on Linux? Sounded cool to me at least a few years ago when I did some reading about it.

        Not gonna happen and as far as I've readed neither will on any other BSD since it seems extremely DragonFlyBSD specific and other BSDs haven't show much interest on it either because ZFS is a better overall FS outside few interesting features on hammer2 that will probably make their way into ZFS before any other BSD actually bother into port Hammer2 to their kernels. On Linux as ZFS is license incompatible as far as I know but if there is enough interest someone will port it and keep it externally like zfsonlinux.org does

          He's been planning to have DragonFlyBSD ready for testing in the next release due out in the weeks ahead. So he's been doing a lot of stabilization work and more to this file-system ...
          I think he is talking about hammer2 not the whole OS

            It depends greatly on if Hammer2 works on NetBSD.

              Doesn't netbsd and others use the same/almost identical abstraction layer for filesystems?
