Hi Rachid, thanks for mailing!  Apologies for the late reply.

I want you to be aware of two things:

1. There are several "Dream Plugs" from GlobalScale.  Only the original
   DreamPlug has been tested.  We haven't tested the D2 Plug, so you
   probably want to buy the original DreamPlug (unless you're really

2. A DreamPlug is a fine little web server, but it takes a bit of
   technical work and know-how to turn it into a FreedomBox.  If you
   just want a web server then it's fine but, if you want to run a
   FreedomBox, you'll need some technical experience or a willingness to
   learn.  Folks on this list would be happy to help you, but we can't
   guarantee success.

Yes, it's still valid.  However, if you're looking to save money, you
might also look into the Raspberry Pi, though no FreedomBox image exists
for it yet.

Be careful, as GlobalScale has produced a DreamPlug and a D2 Plug (the
sequel to the DreamPlug).  We haven't built anything for the D2 Plug
yet, only the original DreamPlug.

Yeah, that should work.  Mind your outlets, though, you might need to
buy an adapter to plug it in.
