Zfs on current have behaved quite stable and is worth using after the
gcc 4.2 upgrade. I have installed current and used zfs on a 8 TB netto
storage as a file- and samba-server (using ver. 3.0.24 and not 3.0.25
fortunately), on a web-server (as test) and on my athlon at home.

There are some LOR's when you use the default non-optimized kernel but
I have not seen any kernel-panic nor reboot.


When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentlest gamester is the soonest winner.
