For my part it's because I'm "desperate" for a good file system, and ZFS 
seemed to be "it" for a while. I'd also settle for any other, including 
a stable version of UFS that's pleasant to work with on TB-sized drives 
(Sun's UFS? BLUFFS?), XFS, Ext4, LFS, HAMMER, whatever.

I've tried contacting the author of BLUFFS, but without optimistic results.
