As a technician I can agree, but I ceased trying to explain to 
management. Hey, we must help hardware vendor personal have a living ;-) 
and they help us put more expertise areas in our own resume. ;-)))

Thanks a lot. I hope not only best as a NAS but also easy to setup as a 
member server for a samba 3 or 4 domain, right?

Risking being off-topic on this list, many people told me not to use 
freenas because it was unmantained. Do you actually use it, follow the 
project closely, or just heard about it?

I have to use my RHEL subscriptions ;-) Will use sernet packages when I 
get to upgrade to samba4.

> get zarafa, and you have about the samba as Windows + exchange
Already have Zimbra. Someday I'll research about integrating Zimbra LDAP 
to Samba 4 LDAP. Won't try with Samba 3 because I hope to upgrade to 
samba4 this year.
