That's assuming you only have the needs of one person. Increasingly, homes are having multiple PCs -- sometimes even one PC per person. Add into that other devices that, wired or wirelessly, use networks (most gaming systems nowadays, f'rex) and you can see why Microsoft thinks there can be a market for newbie-friendly servers geared towards the home market.
