Windows Home Server versus Linux or BSD
Last year whenever people asked me what to use when building a home server, I’d tell them to use Linux or FreeBSD because there was absolutely nothing from Microsoft under a few hundred dollars. There was no way anyone would spend a few hundred dollars on Windows Small Business Server so Linux or FreeBSD was their only choice. With Windows Home Server on the horizon, Microsoft might just steal a piece of the home server appliance market from Linux.
