I would put my hope into http://oss.oracle.com/projects/btrfs/ 
rather than into port of ZFS on Linux. Yes, it is still alpha, 
and yes Oracle could screw it up somehow (I don't exepct it, 
though), but creating our own implementation of the stuff seems 
like The Linux Way (rather than whinning that Sun didn't give us 
the candy).
