Mac OS X For all of the strengths of OS X, two of the complaints recycled year after year are the aged filesystem, HFS+, with its lack of file integrity, and the file manager, the Finder. While replacing HFS+ remains out of our reach, an alternative to the Finder for day-to-day tasks has been achievable for some time. Enter "Commander One," a dual-pane file manager that seeks to fill in the holes that the Finder has famously left. Let's dig in and see what Commander One has to offer.

The death of the ZFS for Mac dream, was the death of the Mac OS as a forward thinking Operating System for me.

For all the greatness that gets heaped on Steve Jobs, his inability to get a ZFS deal done is a real blemish, IMHO. If I were Sun, I probably would have found a way to do it. Death to the poorly working OS X server, would have been my only non-negotiable. And hey, it died by itself soon after.

Seriously, if all macs had ZFS formatted drives from the factory. I'd never. Never, Never. Never I tell you! Use windows ever again. I'm just now getting comfortable with BTRFS on linux, but still a little weary.
