Mommy, why is there a server in the house?

by Peter Tyrrell Monday, December 10, 2007 10:18 AM

Windows Home Server is a specialized and inexpensive file server aimed at the home market. Oh alright, I'm such a liar. It's a LOT more than a file server, because it handles

  • backups,
  • health monitoring,
  • printer sharing,
  • media streaming,
  • data redundancy,
  • and expandable storage for all the computers in your house, all in one package.

It's out of beta, and I want one for Christmas. (Santa? I've been a good boy. Don't listen to Sarah Parker because I so did not glue her pigtails together and anyway she deserved it for laughing at me when I threw up after eating worms.)

The real reason I'm writing about Windows Home Server is because the marketing campaign is clever and amusing: http://www.stayathomeserver.com.

There's a kind of a CNN ripoff, and this awesome "children's book":

There's more. Go read the book.
