This question already has an answer here:

I'm looking for an operating system to put on a second hand web server I have just bought, I am wanting primarily to use the server as a humongous Nas with raid facilities to avoid loosing all my mp3 ect, I believe it's raid 5??mirroring?? Redundant?? I also want to play about abit with remote desktop ect but have no experience with Linux or ubuntu. Is there a version that would suit an amateur to accomplish all of the above and someone who wishes to learn, and play with remote desktop?? I pick Android stuff quite quickly, are there any similarities?? Thanks in advance. Dan
