Mac OS X "A commercial ZFS solution is (still) coming to Mac OS X, thanks to former Apple filesystem and OS engineer Don Brady (who previously worked on the abandoned internal Apple project to port ZFS). Brady and his company, Ten's Complement, just launched a limited private beta in hopes to have the software polished and ready for a summer launch this year. Ars spoke with Brady, who has a long history engineering filesystems for Mac OS and Mac OS X, to find out a little about his previous work with ZFS at Apple, and what Mac users can expect to gain from Ten's Complement's port of ZFS."

OS X server is part of Mac OS X Lion (there won't be a server version)

http://www.apple.com/macosx/lion/ (At the end of the page)


I am aware of that but its is still a separate install option. Apple could change the license to state that when using the server option it is permissible to run OS X in a VM on non Apple HW.

And pigs fly. Get it through your head. Apple isn't supporting 3rd party systems, period.
