I can't imagine a situation where any reasonable person would consider installing Windows as a NAS OS, storage spaces isn't in a good place for this usage and snapRAID/DrivePool are far from perfect and regular questions are asked about the developer of the latter for a number of reasons.

It was more a general note for server type tasks - but I'm currently using Windows for a lightweight setup which does basic NAS duty and syncs 3 pools of storage - 2 of them portable devices. As it gives more flexibility though NAS specific features are more limited. (I have another setup for my main server/NAS anyhow).
