Linking the boards to make a server?
#1
I'm new to the whole non-prebuilt computer thing. Can these be linked/networked to build a simple server to host things like a minecraft server or something similar? How many would it take to do this?

These boards can do pretty well anything that is compiled for ARM or is in the ARM build of the OS. For myself I'm using Docker Swarm to use multiple Raspberry Pis together as a single bigger server (10 RPi 2s total). So while that doesn't answer your question 100%, I'd recommend looking at the OS you are planning to run and see if it has an ARM build and what features are supported in that build.

Since I am not a computer guy, I don't fully understand your reply. I can look the things up I don't understand, so I will after a bit of research. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. It helped a lot....or it will shortly.

Short answer, yes. Start with learning TCP/IP stack configuring Windoze, or Linux (name your poison). Networking is what makes a server a server. A client is usually a network client that talks to a server. Step 1, pick your OS of choice to implement your server on. Decide who your clients are going to be. Also decide if your 'server' is going to be a 'client' to something else. (e.g. probably does not apply to minecraft, but a lot of these boards are clients of media services, streaming services) I am not a gamer, but a MineCraft 'server' to me implies a server endpoint, that many minecraft players (clients) can play together...just taking a SWAG at this... probably a few upfront details, not related to minecraft that need to be understood, networking is probably one of them. At this point, I am not sure thinking of your 'endpoint' (a mindcraft server), is going to render much, but the individual little pieces that need to be understodd will give you the building block to find that end result. 2cents.
