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 they must have just been looking at US markets and how Americans live... not everyone lets there kid have a computer when he's three, not everyone wants to play 'games' on a games console or media centre PC with the family all sitting round waiting for their turn. I can see Íkos wanting this - sitting amongst their wooden toys... this will be something for Assis.
