    Anyone concerned about control over the server, stability, performance, flexibility and security doesn't use Windows Server anyway.

    You're absolutely right. People who use Windows server don't need to be concerned about those things because they know they're taken care of. Cool

    So Sun is now a Wintel vendor.  Scott McNealy must be turning over in his grave.

    Oh, he's not dead yet?

    Wanna bet?

    Sorry if I perturbed your little world... first of all, that's not something I made up. It was linked in the article and I found it funny.

    And if you do not find that funny, then you should take a really long and good look at your gestalt and remove the stick from wher the Sun (sorry, JAVA) doesn't shine.

    Have fun!

    Oh, I found it funny. I just thought it was funnier that it came from someone working for at outfit that has made at least as many misteps and changes in direction. So I thought it was worth pointing out, because I'm pretty sure that sitting on top of your monopoly there, you sometimes forget ...

    What would be neat is if Sun and Microsoft worked on getting some, not all, of the Solaris features ported to Windows.  The new Filesystem would be cool, dTrace and Containers.

    There might be a FUSE port for Windows someday, which may later have ported user-space ZFS drivers.

    Anyway ZFS isn't an all out deal. I read that the filesystem is somewhat memory intensive because of the way ZFS caches data to RAM before writing to disk. The FreeBSD implementation of ZFS recommends at least 1 GB of RAM to use it effectively. Its also recommended on 64 bit systems, where more than 4 GB of RAM can be addressed at a time (greater address space); If that much memory exists in the system, ZFS will embrace it.
