Internet & Networking "It allows you to easily host your own website, email, 'cloud' and more, all within arm's reach. It does this by interfacing with existing software and allowing the user to easily update and change settings with a graphical interface. No more need to depend on external cloud services, which can be insecure 'walled gardens' that require you to give up control over your data. arkOS will have several different components that come together to make a seamless self-hosting experience possible on your Raspberry Pi. Each of these components will work with each other out-of-the-box, allowing you to host your websites, email, social networking accounts, cloud services, and many other things from your arkOS node." I have to look into this.

Does this have a webmail component? How is the performance? How many mailboxes can go on a Pi?

Hey there -- I'm the dev on the project. It will have a mail and webmail plugin in the near future, that is still in development. Concerning 'how many mailboxes', that depends on how much space each mailbox needs (per the size of your SD card) and how much traffic each one gets. Performance is fine for personal hosting and applications, which is what arkOS targets; I am going to extend support to other platforms like the Beagleboard Black to allow for people who need an extra bit of power.

EXCELLENT. The website seems to be down. Did you get murdered by the NSA for not being gmail?
