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."

Well, they apparently want stability based on things like "I've used it for six years and it's never failed me yet", versus "I've used it for six months and it's never failed me yet", or "It's theoretically amazingly sound".

Now, all of those could apply to the same filesystem, just at different points along its lifespan. But we don't get to know which ones get 'time-tested stability' until they've been time-tested...

At least, I think that's how this goes. I've had the same confusion you have about this whole thing, especially when it's mostly used to justify the existence of the relatively featureless and performanceless filesystems, as if that's the only way to judge usefulness.
