The 120 day evaluation of Windows Home Server is now available for purchase from Microsoft. Technically the eval is free, but they charge $5.99 for shipping (in the US). I’m not sure why they are not just making it available for download – maybe that comes later. Unfortunately they are not making the full version available on MSDN or Technet Plus Direct (for the first version of the software) which is a real shame – I’d have probably purchased a subscription to Technet Plus if they did. I’m not sure whether I’ll get the eval, I’ve been less than impressed with the performance and reliability of the system so far. After my recent backup corruptions I reinstalled the clients on all of the pc’s but now only the desktop and laptop will backup – Kristen’s pc refuses to do a backup.
