@hund I don’t know. A lot of people compare the two as they’re obvious choices for a home server.
Nextcloud is much more than a simple file syncing tool. It’s a whole platform too at this point, albeit a poorly implemented one in my opinion.
I don’t agree that platforms should be boycotted just because of their business model. Synology provide a really good platform that’s worthy of the investment, I think.
@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.
