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.

I think it is a good idea, an easy to setup and cheap storage servers is what I need, I waste lots of time backing up date everytime I need to format my pc or laptop.

Well, let's hope you're not going to use that Home server to backup your data because you're formating your Windows O.S.....since that is probably what your Home server will be running ;-)
