    Question home server instead of online services

    Hi all,


    I think about using home server for my own needs instead of online services.


    I already use postfix & mutt @ home server and plan to stop using gmail step-by-step...


    Also I use lighttpd & php server @ home server instead of paid hosting...


    I need your advise, what packages should I use to get similiar functions of:


    - dropbox, google drive


    - google calendar


    - google mail (now I use postfix & mutt, but I would like also to use web interface).


    Any help is appreciated!

    Some Lenovos have a whitelisted BIOS which prevents you from changing the wifi card.
