As 2020 draws ever closer, so too does the imminent death of Windows 7. Microsoft will discontinue support in early January leaving those still using the decade old OS with no security updates. While most have already updated to Windows 10 or will do so soon, the Linux community has been welcoming many new users who've decided they want to give up on Microsoft and their OS (I wonder why?!).
Since the summer of 2018, I've been running a personal Nextcloud instance on a Raspberry Pi 3B+. Thanks to NextCloudPi, it took almost no time to get a fully functional Dropbox replacement running and over a year later I couldn't be happier with it. NextCloudPi is great, and I certainly recommend it. That being said, there is value in setting up an instance from scratch, not least because it means when things break (and things will break), you know better what the issue may be.
