Another use I can think of for a small cheap box is running a headless
'windows server', delivering the desktop via vnc, for those rare cases
when one needs to run software that's only available on Windows, and
that Wine can't handle.

I'm running VMware on my debian desktop, but for some weird reason, it
sits there for 2 minutes before it starts booting up. And, the presence
of Windows software pollutes my otherwise clean desktop filesystem.
