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

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

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...

Just because its that big on your monitor doesn't mean someone else has a nice high res screen to display it on . 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?

Posters and banners? I wish my Photo Stulus 1200 still worked, it takes A3-sized paper

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!

I ran nlite on it and was conservative. But git it down to about 300 mb.
