Schwartz Reveals Apple's 'Secret'?

Lora Bentley

Since the whole week has been full of Mac OS X discussion, I thought we'd end it that way, too. The latest comes from BetaNews, which reports that Sun Microsystems CEO Jonathan Schwartz let the cat out of the bag on Wednesday when he told an audience in Washington, D.C., that the default file system for Leopard will be OpenSolaris' ZFS.


Forgive me, but is this really news to anyone in Mac circles? Sure, Apple may not have formally announced it yet, but we first saw it mentioned in an Ars Technica blog more than a year ago. And since we're relatively new to the Mac beat (at least as far as Not Just Linux is concerned), I would imagine it was whispered elsewhere even before that.


So Schwartz may have stolen some of Steve Jobs' thunder for the upcoming Worldwide Developers' Conference. Does it really matter? It's not like Apple hasn't had a leak before.
