Canonical announced today that it plans to implement support for ZFS on root file system in the upcoming Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) operating system.

Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) will be the next major release of the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system, and also a testbed for Canonical to implement new features and see if they prove to be useful to the community for upcoming LTS (Long Term Support) releases, such as next year’s Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
