I have this intense need to test the ZFS file system. It is the latest-n-greatest that has a lot of the things i want in a file syste. I really lilke the quote - it would take more energy to fully populate a ZFS file system that it would take to boil the oceans (parapharase). Sounds like it would do the trick for me.
My goal was to plug in a few usb and / or eSata drives and play with it.
I found that you could get a developer license CD sent to you so i signed up and recieved in on the mail last nigth. I have an old athalon box with 512k in it. Not looking for rocket science (or even speed) just something to play with in the home lab)
