This week’s BSD Now talks about, among other things, renaming of ZFS On Linux to OpenZFS, and a bonkers story about Sun.

BSD Now 324 is up, with the normal mix of content. It includes a heck of a awk statement for renaming files, and mention of a deployment management system for BSD I hadn’t heard about – Bastille.
