Windows Home Server

For those that haven't yet heard about it, Windows Home Server is a very interesting new operating system offering from Microsoft. As suggested by its name, the target audience is home users, but it is built upon the business-proven Windows Server 2003 SP2. Its goal is to simplify mass storage, backup/recovery, health monitoring, and more for the home user with multiple PCs. Check out this Wikipedia page for more information. I've been participating as a tester on the Beta 2 version for the last month or so and have been pretty impressed so far.
