Seriously: isn't is -48V DC? As in, "Negative 48 Volts, DC?"
If there's another DC in the 48 Volt range, your correction will enlighten me. No BS.

Jeebus, peeplez, get it together! Stop letting the poster in front of you drive your opinion. THINK FOR YOURSELF!
Yeah, Sun has some storage with dedupe that you can buy today, it's called SOLARIS TEN.
Correct, no other open source filesystem offers dedupe. That's what I fucking said: ZFS is useless without dedupe. Who gives a shit? ext3 is perfectly fine; all I lose is the ability to mkfs disks with differing inode sizes--whoop-de-fuckin-do.
2) Oh bullshit. If I try and cut-n-paste what the OSS ZFS filenames look like (or even hand-type them) into this text box, HTML does a terrific job marking it up and making the brackets and "033" all disappear and I'll show you spaces. If I could FORCE UTF8, this would be a moot point, but, guess what, YOU CAN'T because the open-source ZFS doesn't even have that property available, so your argument is invalid.
Read what the fuck I wrote, gym-socks. Here, I speak caveman: "rofl ZFS shit cuz cant copy Télépopmusik from UTF8 ext3 box to ZFS lolz."
Oh, and this:
23212 [root@place]/mnt/Scratch: zfs get utf8only
bad property list: invalid property 'utf8only'
Know why? Cuz you don't get any choice in the matter outside Solaris proper.
Without dedupe and without the ability to use non-UTF8 in filenames (try creating a directory called Télépopmusik in a ZFS pool), ZFS is a future-former. I hear they name filesystems after murderers these days just for the street cred.
You did not read it here first, but I'll take the heat.
