I thought folks here might be interested in reading about my FreeNAS adventure. I'm blogging my build:
  1. Hello FreeNAS! Goodbye Drobo and Iomega…
  2. My FreeNAS Build: Supermicro X10SL7, Intel Haswell Xeon, ECC RAM
  3. 14 Drives For 14 Ports: A Case For FreeNAS
  4. It’s Fine To Mount Hard Drives On Their Side Or Even Upside-Down
  5. Migrating Data With ZFS Send and Receive
  6. FreeNAS First Impressions
I'd welcome comments here or in the blog posts!

Edit: I just added my first impressions of FreeNAS itself, and it's not positive. Please understand that I want it to work, I'm actively working to make it great (including contributing here on the forums and submitting bug reports) but have a responsibility to be honest to my blog readers.

Was disappointed to see that you did not name the charismatic and helpful community members and forum subject matter experts as a major factor in your decision. *hint hint hint* :)
