[https://wiki.debian.org/Debian_GNU/kFreeBSD Debian® GNU/kFreeBSD] is a general purpose GNU distribution for amd64/i386 that uses the FreeBSD kernel, which provides an OpenZFS implementation.
+
 
+
An official Debian release, still using GNU libc and with ninety percent of the same software packages available.
+
 
+
The ''wheezy'' stable release:
+
* can dual-boot 9.0 (default) or 8.3 kernels of FreeBSD
+
* uses pool version 28 (deduplication, raidz3, removable log devices)
+
* lacks support for ''ashift='', and important development tools like DTrace
+
* installer supports creation of pools, installing to them, and booting directly from them with GRUB2.
+
 
+
The ''testing'' release will be updated with new FreeBSD kernel releases, gaining many OpenZFS enhancements, including support for lz4 compression.
