    License wise, I think it might be easier to have ZFS on Windows than Linux. I think this is interesting. I still can't believe that Windows and MacOS don't have checksum metadata as basic requirements for their FS. And I'm not talking CRC. How is it that we still treat digital data as a basic sheet of paper? ZFS and BTRFS aren't advanced FS, they are basic FS. My first job out of university, I was an actuary for a pension fund. We had all (paper) files in quintuplicate (5 copies, not 15), with the 4 extras send at different archive places. Because 40-50 years from now, we might need the actual original agreements and proof of signatures.

    Data space is cheap, I don't know why we haven't adopted such measures for our everyday data.

    Man it would be so cool to actually see this catch on and actually be supported well. I would love to make use of this.

    That could be very useful for some people, as Microsoft has removed ReFS for Windows 10 Pro in the fall update..
