    This is why zfs would be nice for OS X.

    They just need to try it once - that's usually enough. At least that's what I'm getting in from the consumer space. I'd happily run my work PC as a virtual image on my own MacBook.

    You're right, there isn't they will never get it. Again today my IT guys lost an email critical in a trail for a deal I was putting together, yet if I delete a photo or a mail from my library at home a few weeks later I can zip back on time and grab it again - they can't even get the basics right. Corporate IT - R.I.P.!!
