Here's a technical look at what's in store for FreeNAS 10.
One of the greater challenges in software engineering, particularly once you've actually released your latest magnum opus to the world, is deciding what to do next. How long do you continue to support version X, carefully fixing bugs and polishing the rock, before the list of architectural ...

Learn about the history of FreeNAS and find out what's ahead for the project.
The FreeNAS project got its start way back in 2005, when Olivier Cochard-Labbé wanted to turn his old PC into a home server. There wasn't an open source project that fit all of his needs, so he did what any self-respecting software developer would do: he sat down and wrote his own.

The FreeNAS Team has a new home... next door.
As you may know, last year saw an increase in demand for our storage and server products and that demand continues to grow. When we started out, we were just a small group of close-knit people. Over the years, we steadily added more and more talent to our company and before we knew it, ...

I've only used Plex, which I found to be quite straight forward to set up. (I used the plugin the first time I set it up, but after suffering through an incredibly long—though successful—upgrade, I switched to a manually created jail and installing Plex via pkg.)

I have seen complaints from people who wish Plex handled music better. If Music streaming is important to you, then that appears to be Subsonic's forte.

Firefly, while dead as a project, is still widely used as most music clients support either DAAP or RSP protocols. There is also a forked rewrite of Firefly and an upgraded multi-threaded version available, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefly_Media_Server for details and links.

As to Plex vs MediaBrowser, the top couple of results from a Google search led me to stick with Plex, but MediaBrowser has features that Plex users have been asking for for years. (In particular parental controls.) A few minutes reading should quickly allow you to choose which is best for your needs.

The Most Potent and Rock Solid Open-Source NAS Software
Introduction

"Free" as in "free and open source" and "NAS" as in "network-attached storage". The FreeNAS project was founded in 2005 on the principle that network storage should be available to the world at no cost and unencumbered by license restrictions.

FreeNAS is an operating system that can be installed on virtually any hardware platform to share computer data storage over a computer network. FreeNAS is the simplest way to create a centralized and easily-accessible home for your data.
