    Hi all

    Anybody running themselves Windows home server?

    Got my box running this weekend, and seems to be running very happily, only really using it as a file server but currently very impressed

    Not sure how much they are going to charge on this have heard around ~$200 hopefully they wont go back to just supplied systems only. Still my license lasts till April next year so got a while!

    are you on the beta? Cause that's what I'm on and I haven't had any hardware to run it on...it's killing me, I'm loving this idea and want to run it so badly...

    but when your in a dead end job with a dumb boss that loves to spend disgusting amounts of the company money on stupid crap that's where you are at.

    How well does it integrate into a home network with media centers, extenders, xbox 360s? I think the idea from what I hear of it is great.

    Yup I am on the beta program, and it was nice to see my key lasts 6 months!

    Not tried it with any yet, my mate has a 360 so when he next brings it over I will try it with that.

    Hopefully I will be able to try out the media centre part soon though
