Odd that Sun's CEO would come out and say that. :confused:
How many times can this story flip flop around. The writer posted a comment below the article:
" As to the news, it seems that Croll mispoke a couple of times when asked about ZFS in Leopard. Despite direct questions about Sun CEO Schwartz's claims that ZFS is there, Croll flatly denied the reports to two of our reporters in a 1:1 interview.

An Apple spokesperson called us Tuesday seeking to clarify Croll's statement. Croll was apparently supposed to indicate that ZFS would be available as a limited option, but not as the default file system."

We are now writing a separate story to note Apple's mis-statement and hopefully to reveal more about how ZFS would work in Leopard."

So it looks like ZFS is actually part of OSX, but not the default system, and not bootable.

I knew there was another ZFS thread, but I couldn't find it for the life of me. I used the forum search and searched for ZFS in all forums and it returned no results. So yes, I think these threads should be joined.
