I'd say yes – as basically this is just an additional requirement (supplementing the OS part – as with an appliance, the OS part becomes obsolete). Of course this assumes that your question otherwise sticks to our "quality rules" – if the quote in your question represents your full question, I'd think about voting to close it as "too broad" :)
So let me give a better example of what I'd consider perfectly fine:
I want a VirtualBox VM / appliance that provides a web server:
- must be light-weight / have minimal resource usage
- static pages are the only thing to be delivered, so no fancy scripting/CGI stuff
- document_root must be easily accessible from the host (to copy stuff there)
- high security, SSL support is a must
- should work out-of-the-box with minimal configuration needs (if any at all)
- the VM must be well maintained, especially concerning security fixes
As maintenance is an important requirement here, I'm willing to pay a yearly subscription fee – but that shouldn't exceed USD 50. Free and open-source solutions preferred.
This would fit our "quality rules" (all requirements are mentioned), and it's asking for software. I'd see no reason why such a question should not fit on our site.
