BSD and Darwin derivatives "FreeNAS is an open source operating system based on FreeBSD and, as its name implies, designed for networked storage. The project recently celebrated the release of FreeNAS 8, which racked up some 43,000 downloads in the first 48 hours after its release. I caught up with Josh Paetzel, director of IT at iXsystems and project manager for FreeNAS 8, to talk about the current state of the OS, what lies ahead for it, and the relationship to FreeNAS 0.7."

Mh, I was just reacting to "currently, FreeBSD doesn't even have ..." - more of a sub-ideal formulation than a completely wrong statement, anyway. ;)

And yeh, it was really quite un-dramatic. I already had CURRENT on it, and all it took was building+installing world+kernel, and a zpool upgrade.

What's definitely left is setting up NFSv4 and using the AD server for authentication ... but that'll have to wait for a chunk of spare time. At current estimates, that'll be in 2015.
