101 ZFS capable operating systems

With today's announcement of Oracle Solaris Express 11 our choices for running a ZFS capable Operating System just got even more confusing. I wasn't able to find a list of the build numbers these Operating Systems are based on all in one place, so I'm going to keep a chart of the choices here, and if readers will contribute in the comments I will keep the chart updated. The build number gives you a good idea of how recent the ZFS feature set is. If any of these become true forks with divergent code and feature sets we won't be able to rely on a single build number to identify the features any longer.

As of November 15, 2010:

And yes, I know I didn't make it to 101 distros...
(Update: I have added this table to the ZFS Wikipedia article, where all future updates will go)
