forthright != Linus

In reply to: WAFL != ZFS
Parent article: Linus on GPLv3 and ZFS
It's not very "forthright" to inject snide Linusisms such as "the only really interesting thing they have is ZFS, and even there, I suspect we'd be better off talking to NetApp"! XFS is already integrated, and that has about as much in common with ZFS as WAFL does.
It comes across as sour grapes about the license, and even some N-I-H ("core Solaris: who are you kidding - Linux code is _better_"). Btw, there is as much spurious rancor of the opposite polarity from the Sun camp, as recent zfs-discuss flamefests can attest.
Why can't we all just get along? - Admit that some people like BSD license, some people like GPL, Sun likes CDDL for now, and ZFS plain rocks... :)
Linux devs ignore it at their peril; Linus, being an engineer of Sun's calibre, could do a much more helpful job of deconstructing the issue.
