So, I recently discovered that the SSDs in my homeserver could self-encrypt, and after using
sedutil I had full disk encryption that was independent of the OS. Because of that, the last and biggest thing holding me back from switching to #SmartOS was solved (Full Disk Encryption). So now i'm migrating all my stuff from my jury-rigged linux server to it.
So far, it's been as simple as
dding image files into a zfs volume, and using the awesome tools that comes with SmartOS.
