ZFS in Mac OS X ?

Seems it wasn't just a rumour. ZFS is going to be in the upcoming MacOS X! Very cool to know ZFS is being ported to other OSs. It is already being ported to FreeBSD, along with DTrace. Porting ZFS to other OS is good for them as well as Solaris and Operating systems in general. It gives more visibility to such great technologies and innovation that they rightly deserve. It also gets other OS users to experience and use such powerful stuff. That would definitely attract more users to Solaris also, mainly those who still have to know how different Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris are to prior releases, and their capabilities.
The story and screenshot of ZFS in OS X was first broken here:
