+ - FreeNAS switching from FreeBSD to Debian Linux 1

Submitted by dnaumov
dnaumov (453672) writes "FreeNAS, a popular free NAS solution is moving away from using FreeBSD as it's 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."
