  1. I started to take a look at greyhole. This is built into Amahi which is a Linux home server using Fedora 12. I was not to successful. I started the Fedora install, added the Ahami repository but then the install failed. Geeze I just got started. I can imagine all the headaches to come.

    I would consider option 10. Stay with WHS V1 😉

  2. I've spent enough time being a geek. Now I want simplicity. I want the equivalent of WHS V1 (DE plus all the rest) out of the box and supported by the supplier.

    "Option 10" – stick with WHS V1 remains as the only way forward at the moment.
