I can only report that the board arrives and then you need a power
supply and some M2 SSD goodness and then ... magic?

As for FreeBSD well, I can tell you that is runs great in qemu and you
can even buildworld/buildkernel and that "just works"(tm). Which is
pretty damn awesome. I am sure the SiFive goodness will rip well and
true real soon now (rsn).

Oh, also, ZFS works. Works real well.
