This is a follow up to this question.
I am assembling a storage server with 14 SATA drives.
I don't want to "waste" a drive for the OS system, so I thought I could isntall and run the OS from a USB stick. The system will be very skinny (just a webserver and ssh deamon and some custom scripts).
Is there any reason I should not do this? Like USB stick durability, etc? Do you have any experiences with running server systems from usb sticks?
I noticed that FreeNAS recommends running it from a USB stick.
