There is no possible way the zfs license is relevant to you, as a home user building a standard shared file server, unless you're planning to do some filesystem or kernel development code and build it into your file server and distribute your code as a product.
Well, I personally dislike the lack of freedom in the license and the 
fact that I can't, according to the license, create a proper kernel 
module. It has to be used as a FUSE system and that isn't acceptable.

On a personal, stubborn I'm sure, note.. I dislike Oracle and choose not 
to use their products if I have reasonable alternatives. I use Linux GNU 
both for practical and moral issues. It is my lament that more people do 
not put more moral weight into their decisions. If *everyone* made more 
of a point of choosing the lesser of two evils in addition to a dry 
evaluation of basically similar products, perhaps there would be 
downward market pressure on evil. Unless and until we do so, we will 
continue being screwed over by ever growing and arrogant corporations.
