Re: Microsoft?

Microsoft could add ZFS to Windows just publishing whatever changes to the source it does to make it work under Windows

It's possible in theory, in practice not so much. Windows driver model is so fundamentally different from driver model of Unix (i.e where OpenZFS is known to work: Illumos, FreeBSD, Linux with its SPL) that the amount of work required would amount to almost total rewrite. There is no reason for anyone to do that, except perhaps as an exercise in futility.
