| operating system for network-attached storage

| FreeNAS as a BSD-based NAS but, in the end, a 
| solution has been found.

FreeNAS Switching From FreeBSD To Debian Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| "FreeNAS, a popular, free NAS solution, is
| moving away from using FreeBSD as its
| underlying core OS and switching to Debian
| Linux. Version 0.8 of FreeNAS as well as all
| further releases are going to be based on
| Linux, while the FreeBSD-based 0.7 branch of
| FreeNAS is going into maintenance-only mode,
| according to main developer Volker Theile. A
| discussion about the switch, including
| comments from the developers, can be found on
| the FreeNAS SourceForge discussion forum.
| Some users applaud the change, which promises
| improved hardware compatibility, while others
| voice concerns regarding the future of their
| existing setups and lack of ZFS support in
| Linux."
