I like to use Linux as my NAS base OS. This is a great distro for that. Very stable (which is no surprise because it's based on stable Debian) and easy to manage via the WebUI. I almost never have to go into CLI. I've been using since version 4.0 with no issues and have always been able to upgrade to latest version.

I have fewer permissions issues with OpenMediaVault than other solutions; this is probably because I am more familiar with Linux than BSD. Supports many file systems including ZFS via the community plugin. I find mdadm more flexible when I need to expand my arrays. I also like that it supports MergerFS and SnapRAID when you don't need a true RAID pool and just want to toss a bunch of random disks together.

If you want a very stable NAS distro that is based on Linux, I highly recommend this distro.

Awesome anyway you look at it.
I just upgraded from 5x to 6x.
A note that mite help others:
1. Upgrade via CLI.
2. #export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin
3. #omv-release-upgrade
4. #systemctl reboot

Cons, I guess some of the menu options are confusing took me a while to figure out how to properly add SSH keys for the users using the web-interface after some trial and error I figured it out but still had to hit up google, that's about to really everything else was straightforward, for me anyway.

Solid, stable, powerfull NAS system. Upgrade from OMV5 to OMV6 is possible and easy working.
I like this small system for my docker containers and nas disks.
Thank you for this wonderfull system.
