Someone told you to send the openfiler distro back to the UK for fixing
if you had a problem ? I'd love to see that email :)
Anyway, OpenFiler is open source, you can download it and use it, the
support issues are exactly the same as any other open source project.
Xinit provides other addon's ( like iscsi-target support ) and software
support contracts, as a commercial service - using OpenFiler in no way
forces the user to either buy or use this commercial service, but should
you need it - its there.
