Yes, as a server :-) And yes, for somebody working alone (or maybe with 
one or two other person) in a home office - definitely not for a medium 
work group, oh no. But in a home office where the looks and sound of the 
box may be important this kind of computer has it's place. I wouldn't 
want an ugly and noisy server in my room... Obviously this is not a 
'real' server, but just to hold one persons files and test their PHPs or 
ASPs this is well enough.

Looks like this is a new server class then: below work group server we 
now have a personal server :-)
