Case of point:

Unified network administration using eBox

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux is an excellent choice for a server 
| operating system, no matter what the size of 
| business. However, it is still not very easy 
| to administrate. Recently many distributions 
| have launched their own interface to configure 
| these server components (like Apache and 
| Samba), but really failed at delivering an 
| easy-to-use interface to configure it. That 
| alone turns off many SMB (small and medium 
| business) folks. eBox is trying to fix this 
| particular issue. eBox (or eBox Platform, to 
| give it its full name) can play multiple 
| roles. It can act as a network gateway, an 
| infrastructure manager, a unified threat 
| manager, an office server, a unified 
| communication server or a combination of any 
| of these. eBox is delivering these functions 
| using already popular open source software 
| with a solid administration interface.



Mystery Marvell EBOX is tiny, runs Ubuntu, 1080p video

,----[ Quote ]
| As I was wandering past Marvellâs exhibit at
| CES this weekend, I spotted an incredibly
| tiny PC called the EBOX connected to a big
| screen LCD. The display showed that the
| computer was running Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala
| and that it could handle 1080p HD video
| playback.


eBox Releases Version 1.2

,----[ Quote ]
| eBox is a server management platform that handles some really advanced
| configurations and makes them easy to set up. I reported about eBox a couple
| of weeks ago and told you that there were some cool new features in the
| pipeline.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
