How many ways can you serve up Raspberry Pi? It will be interesting to
see all the delicious ideas as enthusiasts test their skills.

I was thinking about using this as a FreeNAS platform, but apparently
that's not feasible.

"Yes, you can use the Pi as a NAS server. But not FreeNAS per se:
FreeNAS is built on a flavour of BSD, not Linux, and as far as I know,
no ports of any *BSD in general, nor FreeNAS in particular, are planned.

So you\'ll have to build your NAS starting from scratch, from a regular
Linux distro which is a little more work. Also, the Pi does not have
very good I/O (everything goes through a single USB2 port, even on the
model B), so don\'t expect high performance nor high capacity. Anything
beyond 1 disk (USB2 only) and 2-3 users will be very iffy."

Why not use this as a nas or san even? Chicken? :-p (L)users don't need
performance. <VBEG>
