Openfiler is nice, but the target as you state is the business user. How would Joe Windows Average fair with installing and admining openfiler? Naslite is idiot proof and offers every idiot the opportunity to get a Linux box going without knowing anything about Linux itself.

Features and idiot proof are mutually exclusive. What there is in common however is the ability to share vast amounts of networked storage.

I doubt that the home user masses will fair well with openfiler.
