ZFS has all of these and is more mature than BTRFS...

that's funny Carl, I didn't know a filesystem can only be called 'a
linux filesystem'
if it's installed on your computer...
Well, it is proprietary, not supported by default. IIRC, YaST doesn't.
i wouldn't call something with a CDDL license is proprietary...
Thing is, BTRFS is modeled after ZFS.

Sun did the initial development of ZFS. Apple implemented it in OSX immediately after
it was open sourced, yet never released it officially because of Sun's acquisition by Oracle.
Apple did release their code though.

FreeBSD also implemented ZFS and it's its second main FS, together with UFS.

Since it was discovered that BSD licensed software can be used on GPL ZFS is available
for any linux distro:

it also runs on a few of the world's top 10 super computers:

On a smaller level, it nice to be able to swap a drive between OSX,
Linux and BSD without any problems.

Have a look at this if you;re interested:

it's a pity Linux has its own license in the way again...

Mine returns something else:
% cat /proc/filesystems | grep -i zfs
nodev zfs

Also, is XFS not a linux filesystem then?
% cat /proc/filesystems | grep -i xfs

I get xfs.
