    So, a Home Server would be nice. Instant restore from failing hard drives!


    It might making a failing hard drive kinda fun....so let me win one of these Wink.

    That ARTiGO Pico-ITX kit seems perfect for a home server. I wasn't aware of it, or aware you could build your own and get the OS...

    This is exstatically neat.

    Home server on a Pico-ITX sounds nice Smiley

    I find that the HP home servers (the only ones sold in my country) are very large for what they actually do.
    I sure would like to win one of these as well Wink

    I've been thinking about reusing an old desktop to act as a Home Server, however this machine sounds like a small jet engine and uses almost as much energy. A nice little quiet machine would be ideal, but the ARTiGO Pico ITX machine could be a little too little. I've not seen anyone comment on the noise levels coming from the HP server.

    Wow, that's a really great idea. I've always wanted to switch to WHS, but the size of the HP has always daunted me. This pico mod is a great concept... just stack it with the switches and routers, and skip another tower setup entirely. Will definitely follow!

    This is awesome!

    Low power consumption is a good point I would look forward to.

    I would love to win one!

    Hm a Green Home Server, would be cool to win one. Or in other words: please, please i want it!!! I always wanted a WHS and with the 13 watts the ARTiGO Pico-ITX seems to be perfect.

    It's small footprint and energy consumption is quite impressive! Well done on all fronts!

    Sorry for the repost. Apparently Firefox and this site don't get along.

    Nice... did you give it away already?  and I cannot believe I am saying this as when it comes to windows + software HP has in the past done really poorly, but the latest offering from HP re WHS has a great suite of application services/functionality.   size or not (and I like this combo) i would lean toward the HP...  Once these things become a commodity, the tipping point will always become applications functionality...
