freenas 7 lives on

Thanks to a tip from one of my commenters, I’ve discovered that FreeNAS 7 (formally “legacy” FreeNAS) lives on as NAS4Free.  This is pretty exciting news, as I did indeed love FreeNAS and it’s super easy Web GUI.  While I’m happy to see that the project has been carried forward with an updated OS (FreeBSD 9), I’m not going to be doing any switching anytime soon.  I’m pretty committed to Ubuntu Server now, and quite frankly the amount of time required to re-setup all of my software would be too much (not to mention lack of Plex support too!).

I would love to see if someone could port the web admin UI to Ubuntu or Debian for general usage.  Anyone out there that’s handy with porting, please consider this my official request.

Over and out.
