Mac OS X Developers have received from Apple a 'ZFS on Mac OS X Preview 1.1' package, which offers preliminary support for the ZFS file system, originally developed by Sun Microsystems for their Solaris OS. Currently, the Mac OS is based on the HFS+ file system, but leaked screenshots of earlier versions of Leopard showed options for formatting hard drives for ZFS. Reportedly, this preview allows full read and write capabilities with the latest developer build of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, Apple's upcoming version of its OS X operating system.

I do know a lot of people who are using it with 32 bit and 1G of RAM - without any drawbacks. Of course it's FreeBSD I'm talking of. Solaris, well, Solaris isn't Mac OS X and it is not FreeBSD. Solaris is sometimes a huge ressource hog.
