Rebooting the Cobalt Qube?

This came up in a comment on yesterday's post.

I used to have a Cobalt Qube, many years ago. I even hosted scripting.com on it, as a static site. It ran Linux and Apache, but I never accessed it through the command line. It had a very nice selection of server software pre-installed, and a web-based admin app, that was also very nice. Easy to use. And way ahead of its time, I think.

It was a great start, but it was never finished, as far as I know. That was 15 years ago. By now we should have a fantastic web-based admin app for Linux. It's a very important, imho, missing piece.

I would love to participate in a community effort to catch up to where we were with the Qube, and then go way past where it was.
