For smaller use cases, you can even use a Raspberry Pi as a server.

In other news, I switched from Manjaro to Endeavour OS but still on KDE. So it feels like I never even switched.

How are you migrating between distros? Do you install all the programs and personal projects related setup again everytime?

I have my home directory on a separate partition. So I don't have to backup my data. But I have to reinstall all of my programs.

I just need to backup my /etc/fstab file since I have a lot of partitions across all my HDDs and after installing I just copy it back and all my partitions remount on the next reboot (or if I run mount -a). I do have to create all the mount directories as well though.

If it had SATA ports, I would've.
I think SATA shields are available for it, but not sure how much they cost.

Is USB 3 won't do the job??
There are a lot of benefits to using SATA. Even USB -> SATA bridges arent the same as native SATA.
AFAIK, There is only one SATA Hat for pi4 that provides native SATA. You get all the SMART hardware readings, low cpu utilization, and power management features, if you use native. HDDs can spin down when idle and spin up when required. its a very critical thing in NAS systems that require 24x7 operation.

Can we do a RAID configuration in such home setup ? Because, if we are making it 24x7 server for streaming movies etc. then RAID setup is important as all our collection will be in this server which will grow bigger with time.

A KDE Plasma wallpaper I made in Blender sometime back. It recently reached 300+ downloads: KDE Plasma glassy wallpaper

Get uncompressed PNG of this from the link above.

If you are using Plasma on any distro, you can also get this by clicking on "Get more wallpapers" in the wallpaper selection dialog box by searching "kde plasma glassy" and directly download from there.

JPG preview below, I'd suggest not using this.
