Well, I suppose there's a possibility of that - I would suspect quite a small possibility but ya never know - stranger things /have/ happened.
Based on what you wrote, I suspect the possibility is very real.
So where did I go wrong?
I told you where you went wrong. But I will explain again. You said:
Whuuuut? Why would you want ZFS on Windows or OS X? It's niche is NAS. Specifically in home rolled (DIY) systems and is one of the reasons people build their own instead of going with something from Buffalo or whoever.
This statement is factually incorrect. ZFS is the file system designed to run on Sun workstations and servers, not NAS, not DIY home built servers. Some people have ported ZFS to run on home servers using Linux or Unix operating systems because of the features it provides, but it was not originally designed for this role. Huge difference.
One NEEDS to use it with Linux (preferably BSD)
BSD is not Linux, it is Unix. Again, big difference.
Let me put it to you directly then; yes or no:
Is ZFS native to either Windows or OS X?
Those are the two most "commonly used" OS's.
Has anyone claimed that ZFS is designed to run natively on OSX or Win? This is called a strawman argument.
On linux unix iris or whatever where it can be used incorporated natively and many tools exist for it is there any useful way to take advantage of it's benefits besides setting it up as a NAS (for OS X or Windows users I mean - of course)?
I don't think anyone is arguing that ZFS should be used in Mac or Win desktop machines. Do you understand that there is a world outside of Mac and Win where people use Unix workstations and servers on an everyday basis? Or that much of the planet and the internet runs on Unix servers?
I guess almost no one here uses any other OS than OS X or Windows for processing photographs but maybe you have a better purpose way of using ZFS on OS X and Windows - I'd love to hear about your unique setup!
This is how Wiki defines a strawman argument:
A straw man, also known in the UK as an Aunt Sally, is a common type of argument and is an informal fallacy based on the misrepresentation of the original topic of argument. To be successful, a straw man argument requires that the audience be ignorant or uninformed of the original argument. The so-called typical "attacking a straw man" implies an adversarial, polemic, or combative debate, and creates the illusion of having completely refuted or defeated an opponent's proposition by covertly replacing it with a different proposition (i.e., "stand up a straw man") and then to refute or defeat that false...Show more →
Where did I say that I used photo processing tools in an OS other that OSX and Win? I was trying to point out that various statements you had made, some of which I have highlighted (again) in this post, were factually incorrect.
