I’m familiar with OpenStack.  My first real task at MomentumSI was to build the Grizzly cluster for use on all development projects related to OpenStack.  I found so many problems with the documentation at that time that I signed the ICLA, and I got my company to sign the CCLA, so that I could contribute my changes back.

But although I use OpenStack in the cloud consulting work I do, and I’m happy to play with it all day, it’s not what I want to use for home computing purposes.  For home use, I want something simpler that my wife can understand and use, and I can tell her how to fix things over the telephone.

OpenStack fails that test, and for that matter so does OwnCloud.  But OwnCloud does come a lot closer than OpenStack.
