Windows Microsoft is continuing its efforts to simplify its product lines, and has cut the number of versions for the next release of Windows Server down from twelve to just four: Datacenter, Standard, Essentials, and Foundation. Pretty straightforward. Windows Home Server gets axed, but then again, I don't think anybody bought Windows Home Servers anyway.

But I saw that one coming. Windows Server for a low price of 50$? Too bad WHS2011 was just an average release. No efforts were made to tailor it further for consumers (other than proper DLNA support).

I'll be moving my WHS2007 to Windows 8 Pro. Storage Spaces is fantastic and just what I need (Drive Extender on steroids). Remote Desktop is better then having to install WHS Console on select PCs.

Just need cheap mobos featuring "Centerton" Atoms, ECC RAM and plenty of SATA3 ports.
