+ - Apple removes nearly all reference to ZFS.

Submitted by Roskolnikov
Roskolnikov (68772) writes "Well, it would appear that Apple has decided that ZFS isn't really ready for prime time or even twilight; early on mention of Snow Leopard server and ZFS were hand in hand, a search on Apples site now for ZFS yields quite a few less results than just a few days back, in fact the only hits I got were for an Xserve (read only ZFS, looks like Apple missed one) and Apple Open Source, whice strangely enough points to Open Solaris ZFS doco, this used to point to the Apple ZFS binaries (1.19 release). See for yourself: http://www.apple.com/search/?q=zfs Apple page: http://www.apple.com/server/macosx/ Google cache: http://74.125.47.132/search?q=cache:xc6veOk_OTQJ:www.apple.com/server/macosx/snowleopard/+Apple+ZFS&cd=3&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us Apple has done this kind of thing in the past but really I was hoping this was one feature promise that they would keep, I've been using it now for quite some time for data but it has all been command line; maybe they have decided that they bit off more than even they could chew? Time will tell, they've pulled this with HFS+, Time Machine and other not quite ready for prime time technologies but I certainly hope this isn't the first foot in the ground for ZFS on OSX."

Journal: shit, still funny

Journal by justins

Every now and then I need to take a peek and see what Slashdot features I'm not using. I'm pretty sure my "Freaks" list has not changed, and if I understand that correctly, these are people who have declared me their "Foes".

Based on their names alone, "Lord Kano" and "The Revolutionary", I suspect slashdot has somehow transformed me into an enemy to dorks living in their grandmothers' basements.

I have mixed feelings about this.

I'm just now looking at the extra Slashdot features that have been here for... how long? I really have no idea, a long time maybe. I knew in a vague way about the journal but I didn't know what the rest was for.

The fact that I have "fans" and "freaks" is somehow really amusing. I suppose if I declare war on some "foes" life will be complete. Losers.

You're already carrying the sphere!
