FreedomBox home servers solution
By design, setup and use is goal-ed to be easy and similar to installing APPS on a smart phone to federate all your devices and friends.

This Pure Debian project has matured with a thriving forum.
Besides buying the commercial version you can also try out a similar image of the FreedomBox OS on your own repurposed hardware.

Hope to see you at meeting.
