Transactional Debian Upgrades with ZFS on Nexenta

Bloody amazing is what that is. Not because the concept is revolutionary (it's been possible with hacked ONNV installs for a while now, Indiana is doing something similar, and a few "other" operating systems have had similar capabilities), but because it's integrated and the interface itself is so obvious. It looks as easy to use as apt(8) and zfs(1M).

Very exciting stuff.
