A couple of weeks ago, I tried to install a _desktop_ system on ZFSonLinux. 
Can't remember the exact reason, but I quickly decided to stick with a native 
Linux FS.

OTOH, I run my own small home cell on an Arm box (Guruplug) using btrfs (both 
vicepXX and client cache). If it must be ZFS, would FreeBSD be an option?
