Who cares about ZFS anyway?

anyone who has ever used a LVM solution, anyone that knows in the future they may need to exceed the storage of a 64bit filesystem. Anyone that might want to take instaneous snapshots of there data.
It has veritas scared enough that it nows gives away its commercial filesystem that used to cost over $2000.
FreeBSD users are looking forward to having ZFS as well. (and are rapidly porting it.)
Even OSX users are thinking about getting ZFS.
Seems the only people that might claim that they don't care about ZFS is a linux zellot that tries to claim they don't want ZFS, but really they would love to have it but relize that their silly GPL license keep them from benefinting from ZFS's technology.
