@kev Synaptics devices has short lifespans ("the goal" is up to 5 years) and it's not open source. Those are to deal breakers that should be enough to boycott them.
Also. You're comparing a complete NAS that comes with a whole operating system, that features a set of tools and a whole package tree with multiple features with one very nishe software that does one thing; syncing and sharing files and data across devices.
It's like comparing a construction company with a hammer.
@kev @hund Nextcloud is certainly more than just file syncing but it is not a great comparison. Synology is hardware, OS and software platform while Nextcloud is just software platform. I see the appeal of a synology and had a similar qnap device for a while but the proprietary nature and being tied to the hardware just makes it uninteresting to me.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
