I haven't really noticed a bias myself, but there's just not much point getting enthusiastic about a filesystem that isn't included in the most common Unix-like OS on the planet.

I suspect most of us would run ZFS if it was an option, but it's not. Sure, there's the FUSE port, but from what I've read the performance sucks and it's probably nowhere near as robust as a native kernel implementation.

Personally I was going to build an OpenSolaris server at home just because of ZFS, but now that Oracle's taken over Sun I don't want to get stuck with an operating system that they suddenly stop supporting.
