Zaurus writes: Apple has replaced its ZFS project page with a notice that "The ZFS project has been discontinued. The mailing list and repository will also be removed shortly." Apple originally touted ZFS as a feature that would be available in Snow Leopard Server. A few months before release, all mention of ZFS was removed from the Apple web site and literature, and ZFS was notably absent from Snow Leopard Server at launch. Despite repeated attempts to get clarification about their plans from ZFS, Apple has not made any official statement regarding the matter. A zfs-macos google group has been set up for members of apple's zfs-discuss mailing list to migrate to, as many people had started using the unfinished ZFS port already. The call is out for developers who can continue the forked project.
You can write an upgrade notifier like what Carbonite uses - include the version with quest sharing data, then old versions can notice they're out of date and let the user know they need to upgrade.

Serial ATA 3.0 offers faster hard disk speeds, and DVI provides better video support, but otherwise there doesn't seem to be much reason to upgrade other than the standard faster processors and more RAM. Are there any other new interfaces or technologies that are worth upgrading for, or is anything on the near horizon?"

You download Click-2-CallSM at no extra charge. It works with Windows '98 or higher. And since it's not available for Mac that gives you — you new paragon of PC productivity, you — a rare chance to out-cool those so-called creative types.There's something to be proud of!
