"In the latest version of its popular open-source server software -- the e-smith server and gateway version 4.1 -- e-smith provides the functionality of a Linux server appliance without the hardware. Although e-smith really isn't a server-appliance provider (the company offers only the software element), its solution fits into the server-appliance product space handily. Easy to install and compatible with most X86-based computers, including older and slower units, the e-smith server and gateway addresses the same needs as a hardware solution...."

"The e-smith package is a fine piece of software, and when you take into consideration the company's high regard for your network's security, it definitely merits a look-see. We have no problem recommending the e-smith server and gateway to small to midsize businesses looking to test the Linux waters."
