Im still looking to get this server but im not sure where the info on how to compile/install linux is located
It's pretty open-ended in terms of what OS to install, but I understand that can be quite challenging. I'm sure there are more user-friendly solutions out there, but what I've personally done is dove straight into a self-managed Ubuntu Server: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2m52F0S2w8
I haven't checked out any of the software on this list, but maybe one of them would work for you: https://www.techradar.com/best/best-nas ... er-distros
- as long as the software you pick supports SSH (I clicked on the first one for example, openmediavault, and their main webpage says it supports SSH).
If you do go for one of those user-friendly options, I'd look first to see how extensive the documentation and support is. (Again I only looked at openmediavault so far, but that one also seems to have a lot of documentation on their docs site)
If you still prefer Windows, though, MMS currently has compiled builds being released for Windows, so you could probably still just use that.
Regarding your questions about RAID: unfortunately I personally have zero experience with RAID, so I wouldn't be able to help you pick a solution there, but you seem to know enough about RAID to get around!
