Yeh on WinSuperSite there were some, but they didn't have the nice big high-res logo or anything. :)

JD: It's a new server OS built around being used by n00bs. Its onus is on usability, and its based off Windows 2003. Paul Thurrot seems to be the only potential buyer :P

Even if it's primarily designed for n00bs, I wouldn't mind having a personal look at it... :wink:

Looks good, so what can It do? Is a Vista based version of Windows Server 2003?

Have a look at the review on WinSuperSite, this will answer your questions. It's entirely based on Server 2003.

If I were to set up a server, even at home and had to use Windows, I'd probably rather use one of the full-blown server OSes anyway.

Looks neat for the people who don't know how to use 2k3 properly, but still have a couple extra computers around... :roll:

Just because its that big on your monitor doesn't mean someone else has a nice high res screen to display it on :wink: . At my work we have massive printers that could print them too - But what for as you said is beyond me. Possibly Microsoft wants to use them on banners for ads?

So to clarify, is this a full blown OS, or a different Version of Vista (ie: Windows Vista Sever Edition)
I would think about getting it, mainly because using Server 2003 just for a simple file, print, and FTP server is a hassle (more so in my opinion that using it for full scale DNS, DHCP services

I'd say it's a Server 2003 OS, but am not quite sure if it's full blown or somehow restricted. It's not based on Vista or Longhorn Server, however.

It's not Vista; it's just the management interface that looks Vista-like.

I think you can still fill in the survey at http://connect.microsoft.com/WindowsHomeServer if you want to have a go - they'll probably send out some more invites soon. If you've already filled it in then they may send out some more invites, so good luck :)

Yeah, I thought they aren't giving anymore.

But just today I got in, so there is still hope for those who are trying to get in!
