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."

Sun would love to keep ZFS to themselves, but that's the way the open source cookie crumbles.


That comment makes absolutely no sense given that Sun, by their own choice, paid millions of dollars to certify and open the source to Solaris, including ZFS. That doesn't sound like someone that wants to "keep it ZFS to themselves."

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.


Yes, and there are still bug fixes to NTFS, and still bug fixes to ext3, and still bug fixes to ReiserFS, and XFS, and so on...your point?

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.


Bzzzt. Wrong. The OpenSolaris version of GRUB already supports ZFS booting. It's the installer that doesn't currently. You can boot from ZFS.
