    My main computer with 2+ TB of storage is windows xp and then i have linux on one of my laptops. I've tried banshee and rhythmbox but i'm running into the problem with daap doesn't work with with itunes 7.0 or newer :squint:

    kind of backwards if u ask me? i store all my media on a sunfire v120 with 1tb of storage (via USB). I figured that id get something that no1 wrote virii or worms for... windows is so vulnerable and i know id cry if one day i woke up and 1tb of downloaded stuff was gone.

    yes to the whole DAAP thing, but u can use itunes 7.0 to connect to a DAAP server...or u could convert ur windows server to linux and use banshee to share to every1.... it just seems so backwards for a linux client but windows server? ud figure ud just use linux on both if u could deal with linux for your personal productivity.

    dont want to convert the windows box? get a POS box, linux it and attach the 2tb of storage via USB

    Upgrade your tracks to iTunes Plus, then convert them to mp3. You won't need to worry about how to share them that way.
