Windows As part of his keynote address on Sunday at the annual Consumer Electronics Show, Gates showed off Windows Home Server (more info at Ars) - a consumer device to serve as a central storage place for digital photos, music and other media. The first products are due out later this year from HP and others. The goal is to get devices that can cost less than USD 500. In the first of a two-part interview, Microsoft's chairman talks about why the average person wants a server, why they won't need a degree in computer science to run it and what hurdles remain before consumers reach the true digital home.

My FREE server is an old Dell hand-me-down running Linux (free) with no Windows trouble...runs for months at a time and does a of the services needed. Who would spend 500 bucks to pay MS for yet another license?

These guys just won't quit....people keep saying that Linux isn't ready for the desktop (been using it that way happily for 5 years now)...but it's for the we go....make it a Linux server and keep Uncle Bill out of it....
