Sounds vaguely BSD'ish. Maybe even FreeBSD'ish.
Maxtor have done a storage box with a modified FreeBSD, including
Samba in the kernel. I don't know the name, but IIRC it's a small
purple box with a couple of IDE boxes.
I've heard that, for reasons that don't directly relate to FreeBSD,
Maxtor isn't overly happy with the results, and that the next
generation box probably won't run FreeBSD. There has even been talk
that it'll be running Microsoft instead.
That's upsetting, is there any reason they haven't tried to contact
our developer base to resolve these issues, or is MicroSoft just
twisting arms over there?
