You Can Now Purchase Windows Home Server

Looks like you can now get your hands on your own copy of Windows Home Server through New Egg. It’s 32 bit OEM version of the sku for $189.99.

You basically get a slightly fixed function server OS based on Win2k3 R2 bits that you can install on some old hardware you have laying around the house and voila.

If you’re not familiar with this sku, it’s primary functions are to act as:

  •  a daily backup server for up to 10 PCs
  • file server for sharing files around the house
  • print sharing
  • easily manage pics/docs/media from around the house on a headless system.
  • It also comes with a unique system management application
  • media streaming to XBox 360

I’ve had a home server as well the last few years but it’s leveraging Windows Small Business Server 2003, now that’s a much more powerful OS for geeks.
