Windows Home Server at CES?
to unveil Windows Home Server at CES (ZD Net - Mary Jo Foley) | Mary Jo
says that next week at CES Microsoft will debut Windows Home Server (code-named
"Quattro"). No one is really sure what it will be, but one would hope Media Center
is centered around it.
What do you want to see in a Windows Home Server and what is
the right price point?
Other than a fat amount of storage, the only thing I would want in this product (assuming Media Center is centered around it) is the ability to connect more than five Media Center Extenders to the unit. There have been other rumors that it will also act as a router, anti-virus, spam filtering, Windows Update distro, do-it-all server. While I can see the ability to do it being somewhat easy, I'm not sure I would really purchase it for those reasons. When you get into that market you are already leaving behind most users, and those who want it are likely already running Windows Server 2003 in their home.
What are your thoughts on this device and who wants to send me one to test?
