Windows Home Server Needs New Name

The concept of Windows Home Server is pretty cool. Instead of setting up your own server, just have a pre-configured unit that lets the fam share files. Even better, if you keep your files there, you can get at 'em no matter where you are, or what device you have. Forget synchronization -- just store files on the server and back them up. Case closed.

The concept is so good, Microsoft is now aiming it at businesses -- not big businesses, but small businesses and perhaps remote offices and departments.

I'm intrigued. Have any of you used Windows Home Server? Should I buy one? Your advice welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
