    Phoronix: OpenZFS 2.0 Released With Unified FreeBSD/Linux Support, Many New Features

    OpenZFS 2.0 has been officially released! OpenZFS 2.0 marks a major step forward for open-source ZFS file-system support for what started out as ZFSOnLinux but is now OpenZFS with unified FreeBSD and Linux support (macOS support is still being pursued as well) and this release also bringing many new features...

    Super exciting, hopefully the shared codebase with BSDs will let the same ZFS volumes to be mounted anywhere

      Not really disagreeing with you here, just wondering how useful it is to cross-mount (primarily thinking of the logistics of moving a bunch of drives from a system to another).

        From a legal perspective, keep in mind that Oracle is likely to get plain interfaces (APIs) as protectable IP ... Supreme court case is ongoing, if I understand correctly.

          Would have saved me a HUGE headache moving a volume from TrueNAS to Ubuntu 20.04 (a one-off task admittedly).

              Do you like Ubuntu 20.04 better for a ZFS (maybe ZFS NAS)? Or maybe I should ask - what do you like about Ubuntu 20.04 (genuine question, not about starting flamewars).

                So the biggest thing for me to switch was Docker - I've been running a bunch of services with DockStarter, and my storage for media used to be on FreeBSD using a ZFS pool. I am still using a ZFS pool, but on Ubuntu 20.04 now. It gives me a lot more control over the system doing it myself, and Docker makes it super easy to run a bunch of servies.

                  I think that was already the case, if you put ZFS on the full device, or in a compatible partition type, but certainly a shared code base will ensure that they remain compatible.

                  If you use software full disk encryption (dmcrypt/LUKS on Linux, geli on FreeBSD) then that won't be portable.
                  Yes, I know about ZFS encryption, and that's not what I'm describing. I'm not advocating either for or against either kind of encryption.
