ZFS to be default filesystem in Mac OS X 10.5 “Leopard”

Posted by Bill Bradford on Jun 6, 2007

According to this MacRumors article, Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz said today that Apple will be making ZFS the default filesystem in the next version of its operating system, superseding HFS+.

The formal announcement is expected next week at the yearly Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in California.

Post-WWDC Update: Apparently Jonathan was misquoted; Apple intends to use ZFS as a “large data store” filesystem but not as the primary filesystem for OSX 10.5.
