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.

Blah! Why MS? There are already plenty of NAS solutions out there that are much cheaper. Just because Bill Gates has a smart home doesn't mean anybody else wants (or cares) for one.

MS will eventually try to squeeze out Tivo...cable television companies....telephone companies...

Just like they did w/ the XBox in the video game industry. World domination is the MS goal.
