"What weighs two pounds, but serves 100 people? The amazing NetWinder OfficeServer, that's what. I currently have one Rebel.com installed in my office. At two by 9.5 by six inches and 2.15 pounds, it's noticeably smaller than the cable modem it's sitting next to."

"The small size and lower power consumption are bonuses, because what really justifies this full-featured server and Internet appliance are its power and ease of use. It ships with Red Hat Linux pre-installed, but you hardly need to know anything about Linux in order to configure or use it."

"Rebel.com used to be the hardware division of Corel before being spun off. Corel retains a sizeable investment in Rebel.com, but this is an independent company that makes its own decisions, and there's no reason to suspect that it will be affected in any way by Corel's recent financial problems."
