NotMac Challenge frees OS X users and pays developers

I love the fact that this contest was created and followed it with great anticipation. I really hoped that what would come out of it was an alternative to Apple's dotMac service, that would be much less expensive. But in the end this project fell WAY short of the expectation: A dotMac service for the Average Joe. What average Joe is running a Linux server at home to be able to host the server piece of this equation? This remains a dotMac geek lab experiment to create a "free" alternative to a paid service. It falls short, so far. What can get this project going is for a hosting service to pick this up as a low-cost add-on.
