Give it a try. It's easy.
For those who are late to the party, here is what ownCloud and ownCloud in a box are:
ownCloud in a box is a fully pre-configured software appliance, which you can run on whatever system you want, physical servers, virtual servers, or in the cloud. It's based on openSUSE and built with SUSE Studio. But as a user you don't have to care. Everything comes ready to be used as your ownCloud in a box.
It's great to see the ownCloud community thrive and push out release after release. Keep going!
