ZFS Likely in Leopard

Although originally rumored several months ago, it appears as though Leopard will sport a new file system ZFS. Current development builds of Apples new OS reveal the ZFS formating options.

ZFS originally stood for “Zettabyte File System”, but now is just an acronym. It was devolved by Sun Microsystems for the Solaris Operating System. For more information on ZFS check out the Open Solaris site or the Wikipedia.

Proof of ZFS in Leopard was first reported by Mac 4 Ever, with the inclusion of a screen capture of the ZFS options.


Apparently there is a know bug in the current build of Leopard, and ZFS formating cannot be competed.
