Luis Gerbarg has an interesting article with his thoughts about the reasons behind the absence of ZFS in 10.6 on his blog at http://devwhy.blogspot.com/2009/10/loss-of-zfs.html.
Here's hoping that he's right and Apple is already working on their own next generation filesystem - HFS+ is getting a bit long in the tooth, and it'd be nice to see an alternative in 10.7.
That and I'd like it if they created the next gen FS to be a truly case-sensitive, instead of only case preserving one.
I think there's very little chance of that. They're too worried that J Random Consumer won't understand why Foo is different from foo.
