    NetBSD 4.0 looks very promising. I need a fileserver with RAID5, and that will be my OS of choice, because:
    – FreeBSD has no RAID5 support for GEOM, only an unofficial third-party driver.
    – ZFS (RAID-Z) requires 2+ GB of RAM and amd64/em64t is recommended.
    – DragonFly has no decent RAID5 support AFAIK.
    – I don’t like Linux.
    – RAIDframe looks promising.

    Oh, and of course decent hardware RAID5 controllers (3ware or Areca) aren’t affordable.
