Windows Servers for the rest of us

Charlie Kindel of COM fame (he’s wrote the foreword to Don’s seminal work Essential COM) is the Product Unit Manager (softie-speak for butt on the line”) for the new Windows Home Server team. If you haven’t heard about it, Home Server is a Windows server box for the rest of us. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got file, print and media servers all over the house in a confusing mess and I look forward to being able to consolidate it. According to the enthusiastic beta tester I talked to, Windows Home Server is the way to do that.

Yesterday, Charlie announced the Windows Home Server Blog. Enjoy.
