Will Leopard include ZFS or not?
Last week, Sun's chief executive Jonathan Schwartz said it will. Then Monday, Brian Croll, senior director of product marketing for Mac OS, said, "ZFS is not happening" in Leopard.
"We are exploring it as a file system option for high-end storage systems with really large storage. As a result, we have included ZFS -- a read-only copy of ZFS -- in Leopard."
The Register sees early approval for ZFS among developers, saying it would offer the ability to securely handle large volumes of data using the Solaris 10 operating system.
