I just gave Will Backman over at BSDTalk an interview on FreeNAS 8, NanoBSD, ZFS and embedding FreeBSD. You can check it out at the BSDtalk blog. Hope you all enjoy.
Another FreeNAS Alpha snapshot is slated for early this week. Stay tuned. It will include a revamped user interface, local user support, FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE ports and a few other goodies.
