Best Plug-n-Play NAS/Home Server OS? Tags: NAS / RAID Servers Components Last response: June 21, 2010 3:01 PM in Components Share lauxenburg June 20, 2010 10:04:47 PM Hello all, A friend an I are working on a prototype home server/NAS that we may attempt to put on the market, on a small scale. We haven't quite got the logistics worked out yet, but we are working. Essentially, we want an easy to use NAS that requires little or no programing/input from the user. Plug-n-play. I have been looking around, although not to much avail. I would rather not use WHS, although if it resorts to that, we may have to go that route. Others I have been looking at have been FreeNAS, Ubuntu Server, Debian, and Fedora. I was never too much of a networking guy myself. But we were wondering what your guys/girls opinions were. Thank you for all of your input.
