This is more of an hardware question than a software one but still...: I would like to have a server at home to play/experiment with it. The usages would be to host my own repositories (bzr, svn, etc), have a small webserver to host a wiki/trac for my personal programming projects and a ftp to host files.
So I'm considering buying a small PC but it this ecological concerned times that we're living in I would really like to have a small power consumption! So any advice on what I should buy?
This site has some really low cost and low power computers, that are x86 to boot! These won't be any speed demon computers, but if you just want to use it for light home usage such as repository and ftp serving, you should be fine.
Here is a computer that runs on about 5 watts... You could run 12 on the power it takes to run a light bulb!
