As much as I could deduce, Btrfs outperforms ZFS, and it is at the 
moment only missing btrfsck (in development). And it supports (almost) 
all features.

I was really hot for ZFS, but I have seen one thorough test with various 
sizes of data and in some cases Btrfs outperformed ZFS, but I cleaned my 
Firefox cache and history for the first time in at least a year :( and I 
can not find it now.

Btrfs is pushed and sponsored by Oracle, for their uses, and since ZFS 
is also theirs, I guess they will implement all ZFS's good featuries.
