    You don't have to decide to not implement something, because you don't implement anything anyway and can't even finish a hello world without copy pasting it.

              is not, you don't understand the goal.

                i understand the goal but it's pointless since ZOL is a fork which drived away and did even make the mistake not dual.licensing new contributions, do yourself a favour and read the comments from this topic which are partly from ZOL developers!

                  What is the goal? First off, ZoL is based on the OpenSolaris code, but there is plenty of code owned by others too. It also uses some parts of OpenSolaris/Illumos that are not ZFS. If Oracle offered all of that under a GPL license, others would still need to approve it. Most of us would likely want to go with a dual license rather than the GPL, but getting all parties to agree on a license change will require contacting up to a few hundred people. A license change won’t get the code into mainline though because Linus Torvalds requires signed off from Oracle on that and a mere license change won’t be the same as providing signed off.

                    Even if you don't get mainline getting driver to GPL compatible license would allow you to use all the provided features of the Linux kernel.

                    Doing a license change is not simple. Also you have the problem due to not correctly licensing is even of Oracle did provide a sign off now you would still be required to go around and ask for developer permissions as well. Its all due to the way CDDL conflits.

                      I'm not "claiming" anything. See here, FreeBSD crushes Linux in TCP/IP networking performance, especially on 10g: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...reebsd12&num=3 Fact: FreeBSD is the superior choice for building network appliances, because it performs better than Linux in TCP/IP networking.
