Windows Home Server Released To Manufacturing

Post by pr0gram the pr0grammer »

The RTM build of Windows Home Server has been built. There are two versions that are on their way to the hardware partners: both the normal OEM version (like we will be able to buy pretty soon) as well as a 120-day evaluation copy (much like Server 2003).

Read all about it here!

There's also an interesting bit in the blog post about why it was codenamed Q / Quattro. This is the fourth attempt at a home server. Interestingly one attempt was codenamed Bedrock, and was shown at the 2000 CES.

If this evaluation copy is offered for download, I might give it a try to see what MS have made out of this.

I tested the last RC from Microsoft Connect, its extremly cute, and even tho that i have a couple of win2k3 enterprise servers running, i am still considering setting up a permanent WHS, mainly because the ease of use, going to install a new version here later and see how it interacts with Longhorn 4079.. (it has this kind of a client that you install, the client handles backup of the machine and so on)

Anyone else tryed it ?
