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."

ZFS is *very* RAM hungry. Using it on 32-bit systems with 512 MB or less can lead to kernel panics. The sweat spot seems to be around/above 1 GB of RAM.

On 64-bit systems, it's a lot smoother and runs better, even with just 512 MB RAM.

It can also lead to a lot of disk I/O.

See the archives of the FreeBSD stable and current mailing lists for more info (mostly FreeBSD specific, but with links to Solaris info).
