So does this mean it will eventually find it's way on to desktop computers or not?

Not the first MS borrowed an idea.

Sounds like Microsoft is ripping off zfs in more ways than one. Interesting.

I don't think I'd call it "ripping off ZFS" as resiliency, performance, and increased storage size are the goals of File Systems as a whole.

That's like saying Honda ripped Ferrari off because they increased the speed of the 2012 Civic.

But it does mean that Microsoft is way behind the times and is only catching up now (much like the iPhone 4S is already outdated compared to the best Android smartphones).

So is Apple, since HFS+ is pretty damn old. But comparing features to the needs/wants of the people now is kind of silly. Taking the other guy's example, you could say Honda is way behind on the times because they don't have a car that matches the current specs of Ferrari's or Lamborghini's.

And it doesn't affect most servers because they don't run Windows Server anyway.
