ZFS will be the Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard file system

Jun 8, 2007 - 5 Comments

The durable and powerful ZFS file system is said to be the official file system of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, this according to a report on MacNN. Citing the CEO of Sun Microsystems as the source of the information, Apple will reportedly announce the change this next week at the Worldwide Developer Conference. From MacNN: “ZFS is a filesystem developed by Sun that is 128-bit, meaning it offers 16 billion billion times the capacity of 32- or 64-bit systems — virtually unlimited by today’s standards. ZFS also offers increased performance because it is transactional object model rather than more traditional I/O mechanisms.”

    meme, yes you will be able to upgrade to Leopard. You will also be able to use the new file system, you just will need to backup your personal information and data, format, and reinstall

    Care to substantiate your comment, “furytab,” (as opposed to a juvenile, baseless accusation)?
