    GRUB is under the GPL v3, so the usual ZFS uncertainties apply. Until Oracle say something... which they continue not to.
    Unfortunately.

      Nice, but I'm not sure if GRUB developers are still stubborn to include framebuffer deffering console take over support (to keep fb for kernel), or did they finally accepted it? It works out of the box with systemd-boot, and it have easy selection shortcuts for multi-boot, either via order numbers, and even included 'w' for Windows and so on, not sure if GRUB have those things as well?

        GRUB had functional ZFS boot support in iXSystem's PC-BSD. How come license did not stop it?

        It's "broken" now, since legacy and UEFI systems get by using FreeBSD's own bootloader and TrueOS moved over to using rEFInd.

          This is bs, sure you can't just drag and drop ZoL code over, but GRUB isn't Linux anyway so the driver has to be different. Nothing stops anyone from writing a new ZFS driver, especially if it is a cut-down and read-only version like most GRUB drivers.

          It's not a derivative.

            Nitpick: UEFI systems drop their kernel in the FAT32 EFI partition and their bootloader only needs to load it from there (also true for rEFInd, which can load EFI drivers but the only ZFS EFI driver available was extracted from GRUB's code.
