I use it on and off for data exchange between a MacBook Pro, some iMacs, 
and various Solarisoid systems.  I do this with single-disk pools on 
external drives, connected via eSATA to Solaris servers and via USB to 
the MacBook Pro.

It works.

There is just one outrageously brain-damaged idiocy, and that is 
the installer.  I have one iMac that only has 3 GB RAM.  The installer
flatly refuses to install on that box because it insists on a minimum
of 4 GB.  It cannot guarantee stable performance for a single-disk pool
with only 3 GB of memory.  What a load of crap.  If that had been the
first box I installed it on, I would have ditched it then and there.

I signed up to the ZEVO community forum and saw that other users had
already complained about that problem, but it seems neither an official 
fix nor a workaround is available.

ZEVO is free, and Greenbytes are entitled to release it in whatever
form they want, but I found that restriction remarkably stupid.
