Let's not forget our friend FUSE, http://fuse.sourceforge.net/ (File system in User Space) for which there is a ZFS project: http://www.wizy.org/wiki/ZFS_on_FUSE and this intro post: http://zfs-on-fuse.blogspot.com/

and of course, there is a version of FUSE for OS X: http://code.google.com/p/macfuse/

There was a small effort for openbsd here: http://www.bsdforums.org/forums/archive/index.php/t-35857.html but not sure how far it got.

Might be nice to see a FUSE for windows too, but I don't care that much about windows these days.

I've no idea how far any of these projects have gone towards getting ZFS up and running - likely they are all in their early stages. I'd hope that future versions of OS X will implement ZFS natively without FUSE, but that might be a way to go as well.

Anyhow, this is probably offtopic, so I'll drop it here, but add that I'm really, really looking forward to running ZFS on just about every machine I've got. :-)
