Mac OS X Perhaps overcome with excitement (and forgetting that Apple doesn't like such pre-emptive disclosures), Sun's Jonathan Schwartz announced today at Sun event in D.C. that Apple would be making ZFS 'the file system' in OSX 10.5 Leopard. "In fact, this week you'll see that Apple is announcing at their Worldwide Developer Conference that ZFS has become the file system in Mac OS X."

Jonathan Schwartz definitely dropped that news to get some recognition in early. Apple will no doubt hype ZFS to the moon and neglect to mention who created it. Sun would love to keep ZFS to themselves, but that's the way the open source cookie crumbles.

ZFS isn't a magic bullet, it isn't mature compared to every other major file system, it still has bug fixes coming in all the time, and it has new features on the way.

Don't expect to see support for booting from ZFS. It is so early in development that test builds of Solaris don't even have support for it in the installer.
