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."

Apple isn't any better than others when it comes to highly complex interfaces.

Either he is using windows and expects the interface to be loaded with all functions so he isn't forced to go into the command line. Or, he is a unix admin that has to be very comfortable using the command line.

I am pretty sure Apple's recent moves in their server product line signifies a shift towards SOHO and home users. The creation of the Mac Mini server, the sacking of the XServe, and the integration of OS X server into Lion all point to this focus shift. They are interested in helping people with very little technical expertise to set up a limited number of server functions as quickly and securely as possible.
