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.

ZFS was, or is, never going to be a great general purpose filesystem, and using it as the default filesystem for a desktop is rather silly. ZFS's niche is as a storage filesystem spanned across lots of loose disks on top of server grade hardware.

Forking and extending UFS2 was the better option, but they didn't do that.
