Is ZFS ready for prime time?

Actually I find the basics of its design pretty simple (cow/txg/zil)
and for that reason I think it is going to become very robust in the
near future, if it isn't already.
What is complex is the various journal and soft-updates code that
traditional file systems use.
But yes it has performance problems in some workloads and needs more
cpu/ram than usual.
All I know is the DOW is down almost 200 pts, so ZFS isn't a real priority for me right now.
Novell v4+ FS was / is the best ever - period! If only they would make it OSS!
PS: Yes, I'm blowing on the flames...
