I saw projects like FreeNAS, but first of all I couldn't even find the download, and also it looks like I'll need to do a lot of Linux programming and headache to get it working. I need something that I can install and have ready to go in less than an hour, with minimal to n programming knowledge.
Frankly, I have a lot of things to do, mostly programming and design work (I work from home), so I don't have the time, energy, or mental strain to spend on configuring a complex system. Thus, I need something relatively straightforward to get me up and going in a short amount of time.
I need to have the NAS wirelessly mounted in Windows on my laptop. At the moment I am not too concerned about remote access - only in-home access.
