Re:NAS Server

Naslite sucks compared to <a href="http://www.openfiler.com/" title="openfiler.com">Openfiler</a openfiler.com>. This is why Naslite tries to siphon off Openfiler search traffic by placing ads on google on searches related to Openfiler. Too bad that users who search for what they want know better.

Openfiler is a GPL'd NAS distribution which as plenty more features than FreeNAS and Naslite, and targets office and enterprise users.

With regards to this article, having tried FreeNAS, it has a place among the home market. I appreciate the fact that it is open source. I would have liked it if <a href="http://www.openfiler.com/about/" title="openfiler.com">Openfiler's features</a openfiler.com> were compared too, but then this is not an article about Openfiler.
