Pronounced "Nice-us"


Oh great! Yet another acronym to learn.

We will find out Monday if Sun CEO and long-hair Jonathan Schwartz was overly optimistic, or right on the money.

At a Sun event on Wednesday, Mr. Schwartz said “This week, you’ll see that Apple is announcing at their Worldwide Developers Conference that ZFS has become the file system in Mac OS X.”

What does this mean to you and me (thanks, Scott!)? I suppose we will find out Monday. However, this Macworld article explains what ZFS is, and perhaps how Apple could add it to Leopard without causing pain to its users.

    I really would love it if Apple announces ZFS as the default filesystem for Leopard. In addition to all its popular awesomeness, it would really let them improve Time Machine, too.

    Are there downsides for Nisus and other app developers?
