Ask a Geek: Home servers, and why you need one

,----[ Quote ]
| The final solution that I can present is to 
| use a Linux distribution such as Ubuntu 
| Server (http://ubuntu.com). There are a great 
| many tutorials throughout the Internet that 
| will walk you through setting up Ubuntu as a 
| server, and more specifically as a home 
| server. Please know that this column lists 
| solutions from least to most complicated, and 
| Ubuntu will be the hardest setup of the 
| solutions presented. At the same time, Ubuntu 
| will also provide you with the most 
| flexibility to do whatever you want with your 
| own machine for little to no cost.

Windows Home Server bug corrupts files

,----[ Quote ]
| Given that the point of Windows Home Server is to allow you to store
| your media files, a bug in the storage process that could result in
| corrupted files is bound to get attention.
| Microsoft has issued a support document for the 13 or so (just
| kidding) people using Windows Home Server, the company's latest
| product for those attempting to build the digital home of the future.
| Apparently there's a flaw in the way Windows Home Server works with
| certain Microsoft applications, such as Windows Vista Photo Gallery,
| that could result in corrupted files if you use those applications to
| save files to the server. A list of the specific applications can be
| found in the support document.
