    Phoronix: Canonical Developers Preparing For More ZFS Improvements In Ubuntu 20.10

    While Ubuntu 20.04 LTS was released less than two weeks ago, attention by Canonical and the Ubuntu development community has already turned to Ubuntu 20.10 as the Groovy Gorilla. With it being the first release past an LTS debut, they tend to be a more liberal in the changes in allowing plenty of time to stabilize before the next Long Term Support cycle. On the ZFS front it looks like we could be in for some more exciting changes...

    The weekly reports are mainly retrospective. The trello boards tells much more about what they plan to work on. There’s a LOT of GNOME work coming for next release. Including work to defragment some of the dock extensions.

      20.04 got a very bad review at DW. Barely ran at all for Jesse, very slow when it did manage to run, and no ZFS snapshots at grub to help roll back any of the problems.

        Why the hell they don't focus on BTRFS?

          Would love to see a ZFS on root setup as easy as the FreeBSD installer makes it. Just about anyone smart enough to install an OS can install an encrypted ZFS with Raid 1 or 0 if they want it just using the FreeBSD installer. NetBSD 10 might have ZFS on root bootable too. Coupled with the Illuminos distros that and assuming Ubuntu gets its stuff in order that will be four easy to roll out ZFS on root OSes.

            The Arstechnica review was fine:

            Anyway as long as ZFS wants the whole disk I cannot use it.

              Yeah, Canonical need to make better scripts to inflate those clicks per week counts. That seem to matter much to the distro hopper crowd. One of the “let’s reskin other people’s work and come up with a stupid name” distributions posted their script on the forums. Canonical should pick that up and run a light DDOS on distrowatch! Keep trucking! /s

                Everyone have basically given up on BTRFS for desktop distros. While Canonical went with ZFS, Red Hat is trying to develop similar features over XFS instead.

                Hopefully BcacheFS can eventually deliver a good CoW FS to linux but till then everyone just have to make do with what came before.

                  There's actually talk now of Fedora Workstation possibily defaulting to btrfs.

                    You know the world is really messed up when I agree with a post by 144Hz
