@ SReilly

I see what you are saying, but while a *nix server will run for years without a hitch, Microsoft will be pushing 'Home Server' users for a paid upgrade every 3 years, which I think is unacceptable given the very basic functionality this software offers.

I'm not anti-Windows, I just don't see how this system serves users at all. It just sounds like MS inventing a new cash-cow.

But then I guess if you are building a server and aren't bright enough to research into the best OS to serve you, then you probable deserve to get a little ripped off ;-)
