We have been working on this home server "distro" based on fedora 8 called Amahi
. The wiki is here
and here is the blog
It's in a private beta at the moment, and the F8 release just went live recently
, along with a new ruby on rails version (2.0).
All the things in the web page can be done, though at this time, it takes some patience and persistance to get all going, since after install the system is at the 90% level (most things work, but you still have to configure the file server through the config files or the desktop configuration program).
We're also interested in seeing what people want for a home server. Currently we have a bunch of features
, including some pluging that do cool stuff, like torrent client with a web interface, calendars, etc., etc.
The server is designed to be headless, however, it supports standard dektops like gnome, etc.
Try it out! It's cool! B-)
