Server, NAS or other solution?
First, sorry for my english and difficulties to explain what I'm looking for.
At home we are 5 users. Regularly 6 laptops are used. 3 windows, one Debian, one Ubuntu and one OSX. In addition there is one iMac, one win XP and one Ubuntu box.
A lot of music, movies, images etc... are used across several or all of these computers. But USB-disks are not the ideal solution here...
I have an old server tower where I have put in a new powesupply, motherboard, RAM etc etc.... and 4TB of disk space.
What is the ideal thing to put on this box. Sohuld I use FreeNAS or something like this, or should i just set up a Debian Server? I have never used NAS, but a debian server is no problem.
I also want to use som kind of media-pc together with this solution.
And it should be possible to reach it form the outside.
Anu good ideas and recomendations?
