In tough economic times a server that just runs and runs is important and I absolutely agree that i on Power is IT. I applaud your concept of a "Run it all on i" challenge for small business. I'm a small business too. So far I run my web server on i and my mail server on i. I also use it for me FTP server and file server backup for my (windoze) laptop. I certainly don't have a good replacement for quickbooks though. What's out there for that in the same price range?

So how do we make this happen?

And there's the pity. An i bundled with a "Small Business Suite" of applications that anyone could run and manage would be a real plus (if it were affordable). I know. I run a small business myself and wish all my apps, soup to nuts, were running on our i. I am close, just not there (yet).

So, what we need is a "Run it all on i" challenge for a small business. Although the desktops would have to be Linux/Windows (unless you ran VNC desktops in PASE -- again, missing applications there) it would be cool to see a small business running their server apps all on the i.
