            very light-weight, has all the features I need, can be controlled from a remote computer via a console or a web interface, very stable and secure. And free -- both free as in beer (ie, no cost) and free as in liberty (fully open-source developed and licensed). What more could I ask for?

            I understand that the majority of users who can't do anything more complicated than a click-next-until-finish install can be put off by the relative "complexity" of manually creating directories and copying files that this program needs, but its trouble-free operation and ease of use (once installed) more than offset the initial effort needed for installation.

            Too bad this program isn't more well know and popular...
