Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "When eWEEK Labs first reviewed Sun Microsystems' Solaris 10 early last year, we were impressed by the new facilities the operating system offered for better serving up applications and making the most of the SPARC and x86 hardware on which it runs. With this summer's Solaris 10 update, labeled 6/06, Sun has significantly improved on its already excellent operating system with the addition of the much-heralded Zettabyte File System."

I am well aware of the features of ZFS ;) - it was just a bad case of journalism comparing RAM with harddrives!

Actually it's a valid comparison to some extent. When you add some RAM to system all applications can use it right a way. The same is with ZFS - you just add disk to a pool and all file systems in a pool can make use of it.

true, but the author wrote that you added it TO ZFS and that you didn't need to partition it - which is a total fubar

... But if you remove a DIMM for your system, your machine remains just as stable as long as you have enough memory to boot the OS.
I doubt that you'll get the result if you remove the root drive.

Bad journalism at its best.
