Thanks for an interesting article. It looks like you found a great little platform for a small server. The most interesting thing to me was your mention of Vortexbox. I hadn't heard of that before and may need to look into it as it seems to be an excellent way to streamline the ripping and serving of the DVD's I own. I already did some poking around and determined I could even store the rips on my existing NAS which would allow me to build a Vertexbox with a small HDD.
