According to your mail I respond your questions as follows:
- who you are?
I`m a 55 years old German, who uses Linux since 1999. Nowadays I have Linux-Systems for media-entertainment (Kodi on Raspberry-Pi, TvHeadendServer ) Digital and analogue Photowork is handled by a special Ubunutu based Linux machine with Darktable and Fotoxx combined with some tools for monitor-calibration and other issues. My Netbook is running Linux-Mint. Beside my Media-Server I have a simple SME-Server for several mail-accounts, firewall and SMB services. I intend to install a DMS system called EcoDMS.
- what are you working?
I work in an office, where I have a Windows 7 computer connected to a Windows Server. There is a need for Windows because our main software “Lexware” only runs on Windows-systems. Beside this I have installed a SME-Server V8 for mail, firewall and some other issues.
what brings you to NethServer?
I have been using E-Smith-Server since version 3.0 in 2000. Since Mitel/SME version 7 the development and the contribs lost quality and lot of contribs available for the 6.01 version (which was the best from my point of view) weren`t updated anymore. At that time I heard of your fork from SME and had a look at it. Now I would like to give Nethserver a chance because of owncloud/Sogo.
· what do you expect to find here?
I expect to find a community server edition that works like the SME in the times of the 6.0/6.01 version. I would appreciate modules/contribs as TvHeadend and solutions for syncing different windows and linux based computers and smart-phones. I would like a “disk-extender” as the windows home server V1 or NAS4Free as an alternative to the software raid.
