I think I will buy this thing to host my org-roam notes and other files that I need to be accessible between my computers at home.

@w96k "512 MB DDR3 RAM (maximum amount for the MediaTek chip)
soldered to mainboard"
I don’t think that’s enough for a NAS

@0xfederico Why do you think so? I'm not yet read everything I wish to know about NAS, but my desktop system eats ~200-300 MiB with emacs open.

@0xfederico My friend says that FreeNAS requires minimum 1GiB of RAM. Probably because of ZFS.

@0xfederico OpenMediaVault requires only 128MiB of RAM, but 512MiB recommended. Should be enough in theory.
