Canonical seem to be happy shipping ZFS with Ubuntu these days, so I'm not 
sure why Oracle don't do the same. I always assumed it was because they 
wanted to keep their version of ZFS (ie pool versions 29 and higher) as 
Solaris-only... (not to mention that the ZFS on Linux project isn't 
something they can control).
