Thanks for the tip about the motherboards, I have sent a question to the Coreboot list.

As for running Citadel or SOGo on gNewSense, I can't find them in the default gNewSense repositories. According to their websites, they can be found in the regular Ubuntu repositories. I realise Ubuntu != gNewSense. But if I want to install either one of those groupware from a repository, which one should I add? That is, there seems to be different repositories for different Ubuntu releases? Which one should I use?

IF the hardware is not fully free, is there a viable alternative of a
similar, tiny form factor? Perhaps something similar to the Lemote
Yeeloong but not a netbook? If the Yeeloong is the only way to go,
please let me know how I should set it up.

Both Citadel/UX and SOGo appear to be free software.

A motherboard supported by Coreboot is a good thing. There are a few Via Epia
boards listed at [1] but they don't seem to match your model exactly. Perhaps
it's just differing names? Perhaps it would be good to ask the Coreboot people
for more information, or select a known supported motherboard model. I've been
looking at the Asus M2V-MX SE. It's in use in some machines at the Free
Software Foundation so I know it works well, and it's small (uATX) although not
as small as the the one you're looking at.
