Sounds like FUD.

Like the OP, I too am interested in the current state of ZFS. We've been
following the threads as far as build 28, and I do indeed see positive
improvement and continued development. However, is anyone that is
actively involved in the project able to provide a snapshot opinion of
the production readiness of ZFS for enterprise deployment?

If the opinion is that ZFS is not ready for production, are there any
technical explanations as to the efficacy or lack thereof rather than
the above philosophical FUD which implores the OP to pour over massive
archives (which can paint an inverse picture because the archives are
usually filled with a higher number of issues than success stories --
which is true of nearly ANY mailing-list)?
