Gen8 new OS

Hi,

 

I am just about to upgrade from a N54L to a Gen8, I am currently running windows server 2012R2, when I upgrade I am toying with the idea of changing OS, I don't know if Server 2012 is over kill for Plex, Sickbeard, Sabnzb and torrenting. That's is all I use it for.

 

I like the fact that if my server fails I can pull the drives out and plug them in another computer to get the data off. I am happy to learn new things.

 

I look at other OS's and I am like I want that but I need some advice.

I only use mine for Plex and Torrents plus the odd test machine when I need too.

 

Server 2012 gives you the Essentials Plugin for local machines automated backups etc as well as access to the StableBit stuff so even though it might be overkill theres a few other bits that make it worth it..

It does sound like the easier solution to keep using what I have, but it would be nice to hear other opinions of there OS's and experience with them.

 

Thank you for your reply
