What OS are you guys running in your Gen 8?

Recommended Posts

I just received my Gen 8 yesterday although I have not opened it yet (a couple more toys arrived as well yesterday so was busy playing with those)

 

I just want to know - what Operating System is popular for the Gen 8 (I'm using WHS2011 for my N40L) and what are you guys running on your Gen 8 (OS-wise)

Hello,

 

I use VMware ESXi 6 (generic ISO) with free license. Only 1 physical CPU (no core limits)

 

And then i use debian guests:

1 Debian FTP server (to backup from Windows 7 with Cobian backup)

1 Debian Monitoring with Nagios 4

And now i'm installing other debian with DC client to file sharing in a party lan.

 

Before to use ESXi, i tested Proxmox (other Virtualized system). It's free (if you need update with apt-get you must pay)

I have Debian running and planning to add centos, FreeBSD and maybe openmedia vault as guests on kvm virtualization

I use whs 2011 connected to TV for movies. I wanted to share files, backup my pc's and use sickbeard but also use it as a full blown pc on the TV. I retired my old n36l with the same setup but it still managed it fine so will give that to my sister as off site backup and she can watch films as well. Would like another one to use xpenology
