ZFS mountroot, phase 1

Topics: 
OpenSolaris

Solaris Express 4/06 has been released, based on the Nevada build 36. The OpenSolaris community is already counting at Nevada build 39, but the real interesting part of build 36 is that it allows you to hand-assemble a system which boots from ZFS. The procedure is not for the faint at heart, but it clearly indicates that a ZFS root filesystem is getting real close.

OTOH, people are porting ZFS to Mac OSX.
