Yes, many NAS devices does run an embedded Linux, or UNIX OS but they
normally also run on an ARM / MIPS / etc processor which I can't get
my hand on. And they normally also have a team of developers / testers
/ etc who spend their whole lives perfecting this particular piece of
equipment (either software, or hardware)  I don't have that kind of
resources to my disposal, which is why I want to go the Linux, or
perhaps even UNIX route.
