I thought about that but I need to maintain another netbsd machine and 
all I have is another windows machine. I could make another machine but 
I am going for space/energy efficiency and another machine would kind of 
defeat the purpose. I might as well run netbsd on another machine and 
forget about qube all together.
I actually thought about ppc mac mini. That would serve the purpose well 
and look cute at the same time. I would prefer off mainstream processor 
so binary exploits are harder. I would run netbsd or linux on it.
