Windows "At APC we've been running the Beta 2 edition of Windows Home Server for the past two months and it's acquitted itself surprisingly well - no doubt a reflection on the time this 'server for the rest of us' spent in the Redmond skunkworks. There's still some 'fit and finish' to appear before it hits the Release Candidate milestone around Q3, prior to the platform's debut towards the end of this year - but from what we've seen so far, we'd rate Windows Home Server as one of Microsoft's most polished and most impressive 1.0 releases to date. Here's a walkthrough gallery of screenshots from the Beta 2 build of Windows Home Server." There's also a screenshot gallery for Longhorn Server Beta 3.

I have absolutely no idea is the one thing you got right there. WHS is a variation of Windows Server 2003 that runs on the inside of your network. If you want to get frisky you can install whatever you want on it, and use RAID0/1/5 for data storage just like any other Windows Server 2003 box.

I'm trying to pick out the most ridiculous thing you said. I think it was the part where Windows Update sucks away bandwidth to download patches. Gold Star!
