NetHome Server Download Page

As described in the Current Project State-page this software is not really in a product state. I have been using it in my home for a while in different configurations with both X10, FS20 and Nexa first on a Windows 2000-server and currently on a Ubuntu Linux server. There is also a small community of other users who use various parts of the system. If you like you can download it and try it out.
