comment FreeNAS versus a regular (CentOS/Ubuntu) linux server?
Not hard at all, there are some unique conventions & mechanisms, but ultimately it's Unix-relatives, so it's still plain text configs, command-line, files, and pipeline processing. Everything else is 'syntactical sugar' ;) Once you set it up, you won't even notice.

comment FreeNAS versus a regular (CentOS/Ubuntu) linux server?
Frankly, I don't remember anymore, I had two experiments going at the same time, one at work and another at home, so there was a lot of distros/hardware/configs tossed around.

comment What is the most high-performance Linux filesystem for storing a lot of small files (HDD, not SSD)?
If you know which files are going to be big/not changing very often, and which are going to be small/frequently changing, you might want to create two filesystems with different options on them, more suited to each scenario. If you need them to be accessible as they were a part of the same structure, you can do some tricks with mount, symlinks.

comment System hanging when it runs out of memory
Use zcache/zram/compcache (they've changed names quite a bit), it does wonders for low-RAM systems.

comment Things to consider when buying a desktop to use dual screens in linux
I got Arch work to fine with dual screens with both Nvidia card, and the built-in Intel video from Sandy Bridge chips. Just keep your kernel and video drivers updated.

comment Faster alternatives to lsof
lsof is not the slow part, using all the name resolutions and ip resolving is. Make it all numeric and it will go fast.
