I run Microsoft Windows XP Media Centre Edition 2005 for our home entertainment system. A P3 on Windows XP equipped with Raid-5 500GB storage takes care of the backup requirements for all the important files in the house.
Thus when Windows Home Server was announced, I was definitely interested to join in the beta since it would allow me to run a single box to backup data and have remote access capabilities. Am a bit late (apparently there’s a queue of 25,000!) but have just signed up and awaiting an invite to test Beta 2 of WHS.
