I don't know how retro friendly it could be or even if it works with any kind of desktop OS
Well, many higher end NASs had ultra low voltage Celerons etc., so at least theoretically it may be able to run some x86 OS. What might be a problem is that these boards most likely don’t have any video output and your only option is serial console. Even if they would have video output, they may not support peripheral devices such as USB keyboards or mice. And again console is the only option in this case.
