"Linux in a small office? You don't have to be a geek to bring email, Internet access, and Web hosting services into a small office of networked systems, both Macintosh and PC. Cobalt Networks's new Qube 2 offers the same incredibly easy setup and administration as the Qube 2700 we tested last year. Only the Qube 2 keeps the low price and it also offers a host of improvements.

If you're not familiar with the Qube concept, here's a quick refresher: plug the tiny 7.25 x 7.25 x 7.75-inch blue box into your Ethernet network and Internet connection (Ethernet or regular telephone modem). Program in the TC/IP settings or, if your provider offers it, the Qube configures itself using DHCP. Next, log into the cube from another machine through a standard browser, set up email accounts, and access and serve pages via the built-in Apache Web server."
