Linux had iSCSI before FreeBSD (
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISCSI#Operating_systems) did and from the get
go there was huge pressure to use it instead of NFS because like everything
else in Linux iSCSI was newer, shinier and faster then NFS (not stopping to
see that any performance gain would be eaten up by any network having
smaller bandwidth than local I/O devices, even slow ones like traditional
drives).    FreeBSD never stopped recommending NFS as the preferred network
storage method.

Never said that Linux invented it I only said it was a Linux feature (and,
by all accounts I have seen, the preferred Linux network storage method)
