Catchy title isn’t it?
Yes, a server for your home! Microsoft has come up with Windows Home Server, which is a server operating system for the home. If you have multiple PC’s at home, this is an excellent way of organizing and sharing digitial stuff like photos, audio and video.
Some of the cool features:
- Your family’s digital memories and media organized in one central hub
- Home PCs backed up daily, automatically
- Simple recovery of lost files or even entire PCs
- Complete access from networked PCs to all your Windows Home Server files
- A personalized Web address for sharing your photos and home videos
- Easy and quick setup
- Expandable storage space for future use
- Innovative third-party applications
The Microsoft-powered home thing is getting real. I remember Bill Gates’ vision – “A computer in every home“. What next? A server in every home?!
Now, If I were to make a wishlist of the things I need in my dream home, it would include
- A Windows Vista Media Center PC connected to a plasma screen TV with Microsoft Mediaroom
- A Windows Home Server
- Secure Wi-Fi connectivity
- A Microsoft Surface tabletop in the living room
But of course, Wishlist is one thing, money is another 🙂
