Personally, I've wanted one for 2 years or so.. ever since I saw the 
ones that the PicoBSD guys were using.  I'd like to replace the linux 
firewall I have at home with OpenBSD, but I'd rather not take my 
current box down to do that because downtime sucks, and it's a dual CPU 
box so it would be a shame to install OpenBSD on it.

Also, since it has 3 nics, I can use it to balance my SDSL and Cable 
connections here.. right now I only use the cable for the consoles or 
(in theory) when the SDSL is down.
