There certainly is a "new" server class. It's the Home
to do multimedia interconnections, keep home records,
maybe control lighting through something like X-10, run
a small security setup, etc.; to act as an Internet hub,
wireless network hub and and to support the telecommuter.
It doesn't need the bang of a "real" server as most of what
does is simply interconnect a limited number of intelligent
agents. It should be fast and flexible, though.

I believe it would be ideal for supporting a web developer
as well.

Actually the home server has been around for a while, but it
seeing new uses as digital entertainment and high speed
internet expand.
