True, adding the whole virtualization aspect and container support might caused this. I genuine when testing it out didnt like the new theme or steering me away from being storage server into something else.
I agree, I think that FreeNAS feels like it is drifting now. Is it storage, is it a hypervisor? Any BHyve for normal users, really? The new interface looked cool, but failed to even run when I tested it. They are a tiny company with few resource trying to do way too much. The old FreeNAS product was bad enough, I know loads of places loses data or access to data either because FreeNAS itself was glitchy or because it failed the "front loaded engineering" design principle and left customers in a tight position leading to failure.
Literally just got off of the phone with someone who had a FreeNAS bug cause a system to become useless, just like the one case that happened today. But instead of it being the JPE encouraging a mistake, the same problem happened through a GUI bug. One of the big risks that the JPE introduces is that the GUI is all "extra" points of failure and has nowhere near the testing of the standard OS tools. So a little big can cause a lot of damage, as it did. The entire SAN had to be replaced due to a small bug in the FreeNAS interface.
