FreeBSD Software Update Server

One of the cool things about starting a business is that you don't have any money. This forces you to find creative solutions to problems you might otherwise just throw money at. For instance, we needed a server to host all our ASR images, to do NetBoot and Software Update and perhaps one day to run somekind of preinstallation system. The one server we already had, a Mac mini was set to to email, calendaring and collaboration services so we didn't want to overburden it. So I ended up building a ~ 300 EUR PC, running FreeBSD 8.
