writes "I have a start-up project where a small group of us will need to share fairly large image files over the internet. I would prefer to host something on my small Linux server from home. I have tried owncloud (owncloud.org) but I can't get it to show thumbnails. EyeOS(eyeos.org) looks interesting, but it seems a bit heavy and the free version seems limited. If the rest of the group were a bit more computer savy, I would set up a webdav share, but I will not always be around to fix access problems.
I would also like the system to be multi-platform (at least Linux and Mac) and expandable as our needs grow.
Am I asking too much, or is this possible on the small scale I am interested in?"
