I've never understood why Apple ultimately decided not to implement ZFS after apparently making all the preparations to do so.  It's arguably the most robust filesystem currently in existence for single-drive implementations and, for most purposes, it makes hardware RAID controllers unnecessary in a multi-drive environment.

It looks like licensing might have been a problem, at least according to this article.
