Apple It's the end of the line for Apple's line of servers, the Xserve. The Cupertino giant has just announced that the Xserve line (no more future models, either) will no longer be sold after January 31, 2011, and advises people interested in Mac OS X Server to buy either a Mac Mini or a Mac Pro with Snow Leopard Server installed.

What does this mean for ZFS?

Apple ditching the Xserve means OSX server can't be far behind.

Combine that with the mass exodus of new-oracle ex-sun employees and things aren't looking good for ZFS.

Apple dropped ZFS a little while ago.
[edit] This time last year it seems: http://www.osnews.com/story/22388/Apple_Shuts_Down_Mac_OS_X_ZFS_Pro...

Agreed that things are looking bleak for ZFS at the moment though ;)

It's a bit hard to ship the Mac mini Server and Mac Pro Server without Mac OS X Server.

You do realize that Xserve was just one server product?
