I have not heard much of this. Does it support BFS well? Is this a more future proof option than OI since Linux is everywhere.

Less popular as they are trying to be more commercial. FreeNAS has ZFS.

not a lot of press has been given to openfiler lately. i think linux users are more accustomed to the command line and also that zfs offers much better data protection on servers. amahi is also pretty interesting since openfiler went up the stack against nexentastor emc and netapp and lost. amahi is a better option for the low end
