Amahi: Simple Linux-based media, etc. server

2010-04-09 23:23:38.63087+00 by Shawn 1 comments

Episode 112 (yes, I'm running about a month behind) of FLOSS Weekly introduced me to Amahi last week - a simple home server the team refers to as an HDA (Home Digital Assistant). In between all the new-home projects that have been keeping me busy, I've been trying to keep my eyes open for products to help address our future media-serving needs. Amahi has now taken the number one spot on my list of solutions to evaluate.

Rather than a full distribution, it installs on top of Fedora (an Ubuntu package is under development) where it provides its own 1-click app install system. A list of available, and upcoming, apps is on the website.

Forgot to mention that I thought specifically of Dan when I saw that they have a Squeezebox Server app.
