ZFS root in 24.04?

I see plenty of fanfare about 24.04 desktop version supporting installation on ZFS, but I couldn’t find any mention of such for server. I booted up a daily build of the installation ISO and it only offers LVM as a guided option and btrfs, xfs and ext4 as options for partition format during manual partition – no sight of ZFS anywhere.

Are there really no plans to support ZFS roor for server as well?

ZFS is patented technology and included in installation should be in Debian way called as non-free, but as it is known with other techs already included in kernel(which is not the ZFS case) in some countries it is not legal to use it and in some countries techs already included in kernel HAVE TO BE USED THE DEFINED WAY which current installator(also in Debian) cannot guaranty.

Therefore maybe some talks between Oracle are maybe required to have hostings and clouds be ready, but on private hosted metal servers something more is required, but European law system is not ready for that but companies prepared to use Ubuntu Server with ZFS may require this from Ubuntu and maybe some install option would land sometimes when it will be ready(I think) :slight_smile:

And yet, they are releasing the desktop version with support for installing on ZFS root, so it does not seem like any of that is the reason.
