    not sure what this is really offering.

    i can buy a RasberryPi for £25.

    i can download a RaspberryPi build of the latest Opensuse 13.1 for nothing.

    i can do a one-click install of the latest Owncloud 6.0 from the Opensuse webpage.

    this is just Owncloud running on a RaspberryPi, right...?

    What I would pay for is a simple to use and maintain samba 4 server implementation to allow a cheap way of building a home network where the clients could be using various versions of Windows, Linux, Android (and maybe even Apple) and could all log in, and all the major files held on a separate NAS.

    My only alternative is to buy a proper server. I know people are using the Raspberry for this, I just want the plug and play version!

    Another web based server admin frontend? Whats wrong with freenas?

    I also don't see the appeal of running this kind of stuff on pis. Proper hardware is so cheap (a perfectly usable server system based round one of the integrated celeron boards wouldn't cost more than 80 quid) I'd even bet that solution would be cheaper (as you don't need to buy a decent wallwart for the pi + enclosures for drives etc) and

    I spent about 6 months trying to run my home server solution on a pogoplug, and whilst it worked, it was generally such a huge PITA that I ended up buying a microserver. It would have been fine for any single task - but for general purpose use the performance just isnt there.
