I have a PC lying around with the following specs:
- Core i5 - 3570
- 8GB RAM
- 120 GB SSD
- Two free SATA slots that I will use for 2x 2TB HDDs
I want to to turn this PC into a home server / NAS but I don’t know what OS to use. I wouldn’t mind installing a linux distro on it, but I already have a Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 license due to student offers.
Kodi and Plex are also new things to me. I will use it to stream media to my Sony Android TV and my windows PC, which are on the same network. Streaming to my phone would be a nice bonus, but not really mandatory.
Any OS recommendations or personal experience when dabbling with these applications would be very welcome.
