Of course, being able to login at all times is one of the most important 

Well, there are many factors; in the end I would like it to be a cheap 
and reliable domain controller for small offices:

- cost - this mini router (it even has wireless) + USB stick cost less 
than a PC
- it's small and compact
- stability - there is no fan, no hard disk, no moving parts that can break
- ease of (remote) management (when it's set up properly) - in case of 
any trouble, someone just turns the device off and on, it'll be up again 
in a matter of seconds
- it's fun to do something new :)
