Login

Synology’s DSM operating system has a very fresh welcome and login screen. It will display the given server name in the middle and show the server’s time and date in the top corner.

Dashboard

The dashboard is one of the best on the NAS market. It reminds a lot more about a full desktop based operating system than a web interface. You have a taskbar with start button at the top, to speak in windows terms, and a desktop that you can drop links to functions and features onto. You can multi-task in it, minimize, and maximize windows. DSM also supports overlay widgets.
