IntroductionOver the last seven years, AnandTech has grown from a small motherboard review website to an entire community and cornerstone of the computer industry. For the millions who read AnandTech each month, we are pleased to announce our newest contributing writer, Brian Ng. Brian has over 10 years of experience in academic networks and we are very excited to call him our new networking expert. And here, we present the first of many upcoming networking reviews.
The old adage, "don't judge a book by its cover", holds especially true for the Post Genie. It looks like a very early prototype of an IPod that, for some reason, the designers painted with mid-80s faded green paint. But what is the Post Genie? Armor Link's Post Genie is an all-in-one router, web/email server, and print server appliance. It is targeted at small businesses and home offices that may not want the hassle or even have the expertise of running a Linux box with qmail or Windows with Exchange. Our Post Genie is running Linux with kernel 2.4.18, with Apache for the web server and qmail.
