Home server is very limited, such that you cannot install DHCP, DNS, or WINS without violating the EULA.

As a CNE, I say, with regret, to move on to Windows.

A Linux server would work, but my experience has been that there will always be an application that needs Windows to run.

While the Samba application offers the equivalent functionality of a Windows workgroup with shares and so forth, there is Samba version 4 which is a Linux version of Active Directory.

A Linux server such as Amahi or ALT Linux School are worth a look...
