Ah yes, that makes sense. I was thinking the full time machines.

Or a Dell Zino for 250 USD, its 64-bit and runs Debian/Ubuntu nicely.
Cool. The X2100 is basically identical to the Ultra20 i have, it's a Tyan main board with Opteron - and runs Debian/Ubuntu nicely :o)
How do we raise the funds? Is there an established way, or idea how to do it?
It would be nice to have a 64-bit Debian machine with a bunch of chroots, both 32-bit and 64-bit, Debian and Ubuntu. I suppose it might also be possible to have Fedora, Gentoo, etc. chroots if someone wanted to take that on.
A big part of that question is also: who is going to build and maintain this machine? I'm overloaded as it is.
