What's so great about ZFS?

Nobody seems to be able to give a straight answer. All i hear is blah blah end to end dynamic virtual 128bit copy read write blah blah. Anyone here know?

Doesn't really help. The only ones I could pick up was the not having to fsck & the 128 bit, but I still don't get why it's so omg. It's just a fscking file system can't you guys abstract it a bit further? Eg if I have a disk formatted in ZFS, ....... how many times will it get me laid? I think I hang around nerds too much.

I had never heard of ZFS until now. It seems to be a very handy file system for server configurations. I may try experimenting with it on my home server when I next get round to rebuilding it. The impression I get is it may run a little slow though.
