    I replaced a tower server with one. I use it for DNS/DHCP/Leafnode/backup management/Cacti/SMTP relay/Log management/Mediawiki and probably a couple of other things I've forgotten at the moment. Just plug an externally powered USB drive in for storage and they can do just about anything you can do on a normal Linux computer. Quiet and less power usage, too.

    I'm trying to get another one to run a FreePBX VoIP server, and I hope to get a nosql/hadoop cluster up and running by the end of the year (time permitting). Tiny, quiet, affordable, and useful. What's not to like? :tup:

    Its not a rom its a 1GHz pc with 512MB ram nothing illegal about it. With 10 or 20 you can make a nice cluster.

    You mean the nes, super ninteno, n64 etc roms yes some do offer that option, but yes that is illegal to do. Where i get my raspberry pi offer such option but no roms everything what they give is legal to have namely the emulators.
