Windows Home Server Could Be Just Weeks Away

Softpedia claims that Windows Home Server should be going gold in either August or September, just 1-2 months away. They base their assumption on the fact that the Home Server add-on contest, Code2Fame, ends August 31, and that it is supposed to coincide with the final release, as well as the Release Candidate of Home Server that came out 23 days ago. Not sure how right they are, but it could be.

I can’t wait to see Home Server systems being sold, and to try it out myself. My wife’s new PC is almost ready to go live, and I’m going to have it run half as a Media Center, half as a Home Server. Should be a fun exercise.

  1. Curious how you plan to run a machine half MCE and half WHS? I do not believe that is feasible because a WHS should be online at all times to facilitate the backups, file serving etc.

  2. While it is best to run Home Server all the time, I don’t have the money to to pay that electric bill anyway, so my plan is to run Home Server in a virtual machine within Vista, or vice versa, whichever gives better results. It may be a terrible idea, but there’s only one way to find out, and I feel like pioneering a little bit.
