I'd like to set up an old computer as a multi-purpose server. It will mainly be for watching downloaded shows/movies on my TV, but I'd also like to set it up as a bittorrent downloading box and a place for additional storage to be accessible from the LAN and possibly from the internet. The server would be accessed by 2 MacBooks so it needs to play friendly with OSX. I'm starting from scratch in terms of the OS, so anything is possible. What are some paths I could go down to achieve this? I was looking into installing Ubuntu on it, but I'm not sure how well that and OSX can interface with each other.
