Aside from the slow USB ports, that should work for a low-powered home server. The USB is only necessary if you run out of hard drive space and connect external drives.

I've heard that a few times with Intel, now personal agendas aside, why Intel over AMD and vice versa ?

Both Intel and AMD offer low-powered solutions such as this. Both are very similar at these price points, but AMD should be less expensive. Both are low powered and will not be winning any performance awards. If all you are doing with this is serving files, it really doesn't matter which board you use.

How about a new performance computer, AMD or intel ?

That depends, if you are aiming for performance regardless of cost, Intel, if you have a reasonable budget AMD. With gaming, both do equally well as games are usually more reliant on the GPU.
