Use Case?
Already invested in FreeNAS and doing a large deployment.
$500+ markup for an Open Source OS
Why Frowny Face?
The main benefit of the Mini XL is the customizability of FreeNAS.
If someone plans to customize FreeNAS do they want to pay $500 Markup.
“Certified Hardware”… How often does FreeBSD have hardware issues?
Final Thoughts
Feels like a dumb CEO idea…
Trying to expand into a market without really adapting the product for the market.
Fine product, but at the price point seems an odd product.
