(By the title, I'm sure this looks like an opinion question, but I'm actually looking for specific facts and materially, information to help me sort through some of the heavily in-favor-of-zfs information that's floating out there on the web.)
FreeBSD's installer chooses UFS for you, and you have to jump through some hoops to install ZFS as your boot drive. Aside from some potential problems with swap on ZFS, I haven't been able to discover any reasons why a person would ever prefer UFS over ZFS.
Making some guesses, it's fairly obvious that UFS is simpler – ZFS is far more than just a filesystem. But ultimately I didn't find it more complex to use than UFS. So my question is, are there disadvantages to ZFS over UFS when used in its simplest possible configuration?
