Easier said ; culturally Linux has become windows from 15 - 20 years ago .  Remember how people used to say windows is such trash the world would be better if we all use Linux ?  The problem is the people who made Windows trash just moved on to using Linux .

Ed I can't agree more here . One thing I do dislike about the sun model was the idea of rebuilding other tools at the same time . For example we got logadm in place of logrotate.   My gut feeling why stuff like that happens is corporate software development; imagine working at sun when zfs is released? How do you show you are worth your salt , when you don't work on zfs ?  I know you polish some other tool , to make yourself look cool too . 

I suspect working at redhat is similar. But I am not sure what their zfs is .
