Even if the licensing conditions are such that ZFS can never go into Linux... the fact that the source code is freely available means that it should be much easier for someone to implement a ZFS-style filesystem of their own, since they have a production-quality working example to confer to... thus, the open sourcing of ZFS makes it more likely that Linux will get ZFS-style technology, even if not by means of ZFS per se....
