The Home server

http://news.com.com/Gates+sees+a+home+server+in+your+future/2008-1041_3-6147885.html


Watching the CES broadcast they talked about a “home server” offering and then blocked it out saying it was intellectual property…. I don’t think they had the funny video at CES block out … so I guess this was the “blocked event” of the evening?  But in surfing around the net I’ve found some links already…


Well I have a home server and yeah.. we’ve been saying for a long time that they need to take SBS and make a home server out of it….

2 Thoughts on “The Home server

  1. Assuming this is “Quattro”, that I first saw mentioned by Paul Thurrott at the end of 2005, rumours were that it would be a cutdown version of Server 2003 R2 (rather than SBS R2), although I have seen a suggestion that it might be based on Longhorn (unlikely, IMHO). Hopefully we should see a beta of Home Server by the end of this month. Vista Home Premium is meant to support a domain-like home networking scheme through Quattro, so I hope it arrives sooner rather than later, in order to help friends decide whether to purchase Vista Home Premium or Ultimate.

  2. How did they keep this so quiet? Must be the best kept NDA ever. Either that or it’s still in the vaporware stage and was never TAP or BETA.
