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."

Your beef is really that it is not done yet ;) FreeNAS 8 is a bit like KDE 4. iXsystems is really quite amazing, but they cannot work at warp speed. I bet a pony this new FreeNAS will have the whole kitchen sink this year.

(like KDE 4 in that it shipped missing basic stuff, not that it will take forever to catch up)
