Good point, thank you.  The reason I keep talking about the RPi
is that I know it's (mostly) supported and I can buy it from a reseller
that I (mostly) trust. :)

I was looking at putting together a system for a file server, and I've
come to the conclusion that I'll have to build it myself, based on what
has been written here and online about what is supported.  If I could
have just purchased a specific model of computer pre-built, I would
have done that.  20 years ago it was fun to build my own plan 9 cluster
from parts I assembled, these days I'm not as into that as I used to be!
