Description

FreeNAS FAQ lists minimum RAM requirement as 2GB. This should probably be changed or qualified (2GB if UFS or 8GB if ZFS) to make it line up with the FreeNAS handbook.

The FreeNAS handbook states:
"If you don't have at least 8GB of RAM with ZFS or 2GB of RAM with UFS, you should consider getting more powerful hardware before using FreeNAS® to store your data. Otherwise, data loss may result."
