Network-attached storage might not be the most glamorous of topics to cover on these pages, but there is no doubt that a highly specialized operating for sharing files on a local network can be a perfect solution in many scenarios. Today we launch what should become a series of articles on these useful operating systems, starting with a first-look review of FreeBSD-based FreeNAS. In the news section, Stefano Zacchiroli becomes the first Debian Project Leader to assume office for the third consecutive year, Kubuntu finds a new sponsor in a mysterious Germany company called Blue Systems, and Mandriva seeks feedback from users hinting at a new community-oriented beginning. Also in this issue, an overview of DoudouLinux, a Debian-based distribution with a simplified user interface designed for very young children, and a tips and tricks section dealing with timeless classics - cron and crontab. Happy reading!
