Yeah, I've got that one too. No mention of ZFS, but very little on floppies, and nothing I've come across yet on dialup or SLIP :-)

I bought a couple books of his (UFS and ZFS) last night, on the Kindle. He seems to think ZFS is the best thing since sliced bread. I just did an install with ZFS -- maybe it is, we'll see. It doesn't feel like it slows down anything.
