          21.04 is currently on zfs 2.0.1, also here's a list of the versions of zfs in the earlier Ubuntu releases

            What this means in the greater scope is once FreeBSD 13 lands in a few months you should be able to backup a Ubuntu server to a FreeBSD NAS with just cron and ZFS send. This can replace much more complicated and traditional backup methods (tar, rsync, bacula etc). It's much faster too. A lot of people want diversity in their environment for security reasons, so one Linux vulnerability can't take down their entire infrastructure, and both make really good servers.

            You can do it right now but the pool options have to be basic and supported on both and linux has a couple things (like native dataset encryption) that FreeBSD 12 can't do.

              But that was just a source package, right?

                I don't know what it is, but I just updated my 21.04 VM and the zfsutils-linux package is still version 0.8.4.

                  you'll need to enable proposed in your 21.04 VM and it'll update the zfsutils-linux package to 2.0+ version

                  it's still baking
