I believe most users will actually purchase a turn-key solution, a box ready to go from some partners, such as HP (pictured) and others.
But then you read some "expert" blogger comments such as this, and you have to really start thinking where this comes from:
On August 27, 2007, Windows Home Server is supposed to be released, and I'm in no hurry at all to buy it. I think there is no purpose for it! Who is really going to spend money on buying a new computer and operating system, just so they can share their files with other people? Home Server is said to cost around $500!
Wow! $500 is cheaper than some NAS devices. And it's not only for sharing files with other people. It's for home LAN management and maintenance, automatic backup with mirroring, easy restore tools, media distribution and more.
But if you keep reading it's clear he doesn't know it:
Before you go bashing me, just remember – I have not tried Home Server, and not many people have!
What I just said could be completely wrong! Home Server could be a huge breakthrough in technology, for all I know! I just think it's too expensive and too limited to Windows XP and Vista.
So you have not tried it and issue an expert opinion anyway?
