+ - Collusion or Co-operation ZFS?

Submitted by Ageing Metalhead
Ageing Metalhead (586837) writes "With the announcement of Leopard supporting ZFS, is this a case of Apple following on from the best environment they can license for free, or collusion between Sun and Apple to take on the Microsoft with scalable storage? "We would not at all be surprised to see ZFS start to show up in other operating systems at some point in the not-too-distant future," Weinberg said.

Is Ubuntu or Redhat next to make ZFS the FS across all Unices?"

Networking

+ - The death of the network hub?

Submitted by Ageing Metalhead
Ageing Metalhead (586837) writes "The death of the network hub? As part of my day-to-day work supporting and developing embedded devices, to diagnose system and application problems within those devices I'm often left with no choice but to fire up ethereal/wireshark to understand what is happening at a network level. A cheap off-the-shelf network switch is no good, as I will not see the traffic that is addressed to my embedded device. Expensive switches allow you to set up a promiscuous port that will direct all traffic going to-from a specific port(s). So has the basic network hub now died, never to be seen again, or are there vendors still making / reselling hubs? A.M"
