i'm currently doing a project and I would need your suggestion. I'm building a dedicated server (windows or linux... not sure) for my mac. I'll need the following things on my server. -320GB dedicated partition for Time Machine. I'll be backing up my Macbook Pro 160GB ML to this server/partition. So my OS need to support AFS. -Torrentbox for downloading/uploading (utorrent vs transmission??). I'll be downloading/uploading everything on the server and I need to use a remote to control it from my mac. Then I'll be playing those files from my macbook pro. -Itunes. I would like to be able to stream itunes from my mac to this server. The server will be connected to my sound system. I want my macbook to control/forward/stream?? my music to the server which is then playing it on the sound system. -General storage for everything else. I'm thinking about windows 7 because I can install itunes and then control it with my itunes (remote). But i'm afraid of AFS support for time machine. I'm also considering a linux distribution. I've heard good and bad thing from FreeNAS.
