    I guess so you can host an always-on exit node, without having to keep your laptop on? Can this do exit nodes?

    I just grabbed the newest version, the WDTV Live Streaming Server "Gen 3", which is essentially the "Hub" product without the internal hard drive.

    Will WDXLTV be available for this model ever? If so, do I really care? It plays *everything* I throw at it...so what else does XL do, other than being a torrent/usenet client?

    As a result of inexperienced police departments, running a TOR exit node can have some serious consequences.
    So the idea of ubiquitous TOR is great, but in practice I'm be leary of endorsing having TOR enabled [everything].
    For now, it should remain the domain of experienced users who are running TOR with their eyes open.

    You can say it's a chicken or egg kind of situation, but I don't want my family to be one of the eggs that gets broken because of the content coming out of their TOR exit node.
