That is plain wrong. XFS is in the huge class of traditional filesystems with a static mapping between file offsets and device offsets. ZFS is in the somewhat smaller (ignoring reseach projects) class of COW filesystems, just like WAFL. Anyone unable to see the similarities is well advised to read more and write less. ;)
