By 'eck... That's tempting.

What caught my eye for the NAS is the tiny neat box and the HDD hot-swap.

Noted for the ARM funkiness for likely having to cross-compile
everything. Which then puts me back to using something like a Beaglebone
or one of these others + suitable box:

RaspberryPi and multiple SBCs Desert! (ARM)

The "suitable box" has so far been the sticking point unless I smash
open some "eSATA expansion drive enclosure"... But they are not that
cheap either!

Development time is a little short for this one so a ready-made box with
hot-swap /would/ be good. Compromises accepted!

Suggestions accepted!! ;-)
