Marc Hamilton No Longer Unequivocal

Marc Hamilton, in a comment following up on his weblog entry about ZFS being announced as the new default for Mac OS X:

I don’t know Apple’s product plans for Leopard so it certainly wouldn’t be appropriate for me to confirm anything. […] There certainly have been plenty of published reports from various sources that ZFS is in Leopard, I guess we will all have to wait until it is released to see if ZFS made it as the default, or if they simply announce that it will become the default in a future release.

Update: Hamilton has now revised the entry itself, removing the word “default”. It now reads:

Jonathan noted that Apple is planning to use the ZFS file system from OpenSolaris in future versions of their OS.
