FreeBSD Some people already submitted this news last week, but it wasn't until today that it became official: the FreeBSD team has announced the release of FreeBSD version 9.0. As you may expect from the major version number change, this is releas eis packed with new stuff.

Not that anyone will read this comment way down here.


Yet some of us still read this.

There's a lot new in this release: not least a huge upgrade to ZFS.


Indeed, at this rate FreeBSD will be what OpenSolaris could have been.

I can't wait to have a decent NAS Server at home with ZFS. It will probably be a Mac Mini with a Thunderbolt attached set of 6-8 3TB WD Caviar Green (RAIDZ+Spare) and two SSDs, if the FreeBSD ZFS implementation supports L2ARC acceleration using Flash storage and a second Thunderbolt attached 1Gbps NIC.

I like my storage to be fast and to be able to do the following:
* Be able to keep my VMWare Virtual Machines stored over iSCSI exported ZVols.
* Be able to keep all my files and time machine backups safely with snapshotting.
