I'm a volunteer for a Corporation that gives, at no cost, refurbished computer hardware to individuals, schools, veterans, etc.. As for my part, my background is IT with a focus on switching/routing (the COMM Closet end of the wire) and I enjoy, immensely, cherry picking through the donated non-desktop hardware for candidate pieces to offer for sale to help generate some revenue for our operations.

For servers, I've been using a few live linux distros to quickly verify if they are operational or not. I saw the release notice for Linux Lite 3.4 and thought I'd give it a try. What an excellent put together distro. I booted a ten year old Dell PowerEdge 1950 (2007) with two dual core Xeons, 8GB ram, PERC 5/i RAID controller & 2 SAS drives. So maybe I've found a "go to" distro for our needs. It's nice it "sees" the NAS shares on the network out of the box and supports the USB sound adapter I've installed to verify/test sound. I've just started exploring it and maybe it's time to settle on one.

Thanks,

SpaceCadet
