Weird subject, I know. But this is only for personal residential use. 
I've been running Arch on a system with a number of disks in raid for 
all my shared storage needs. This system also doubles as a router / 
firewall with Wifi, and other little things such as pxe booting. We'll 
recently I've been wanting to use ZFS with it more and more. So I 
figured I'd get opinions. Arch does have packages for ZFS, which would 
provide most features, just not encryption. So would I be better to use 
pfSense or the like off a USB and add what I need for ZFS, nfs, etc to 
it, or to just use FreeBSD? or is there some other suggestions.
