Re: Home server suggestion
I have a setup very similar to this one:
It has been running as a headless home server for one and a half year, no noise, very low power consumption, and low heatsink maintenance. The only difference is that mine has the dual core atom 330 cpu at 1.5 GHz. That was the last one of the Asus boxes with HW virtualization. I actually host a Win2k3 server in Virtualbox on my setup. It should manage all your tasks like a breeze.
