Windows The latest blog entry from Steven Sinofsky about Windows 8 describes the Storage Spaces functionality . From the blog entry it seems Windows 8 is getting something ZFS-like. The Storage Spaces can be created in the command line via Powershell, or in the Control Panel for the ones that prefer a more mouse-friendly interface.

LDM?!

What a blatant repackaging of Windows 2000 introduced LDM under a new posh name with thin provisioning on top. Are they trying to make Windows 8 look more feature-packed than it actually is going to be?

Took them another 12 years to finally get rid of the need to carefully split the disk into C: and D: drives only to run of space on the former.

It's called marketing and sadly enough it works.
