The blogged wandering of Robert W. Anderson

Windows Home Server

I saw this on Nima’s blog, Windows Home Server is coming.  Bill Gates announced this today (see Bill Gates keynote – Engadget).

I can see the niche for this product, except I don’t really want servers in my house anymore. 

It seems like most of the market for this product will be covered by LiveDrive.  Instead of Windows Home Server, I would have loved to see:

  • LiveDrive announced ready for the Vista launch.
  • LiveDrive free with Vista.  Of course, maybe it’ll be free for everyone.

Not to bash Home Server.  It is probably cool, but I don’t actually want more hardware and OSes in my house.  I want fewer.
