Screenshots of Windows Home Server 2 leaked

I've been watching the Windows Home Server market for a while. It looks to be successful and Microsoft is aiming for version 2. Today, the screenshots of the next edition have been leaked. You can view them here. Some notable changes are the use of the Server 2008 platform (previously Server 2003 R2), 2 editions Premium and Standard, higher system requirements, and inclusion of a full Desktop. It appears there is some media integration but they don't work so it's not confirmed if it will make it into the final release.

Unlike the author of the other blog. I don't think its the biggest news since Apple released the iPad.

Happy New Year

I know I'm a little late but I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I was celebrating with my son and didn't have time to post on this blog. Because we bought a house and all the expenses of moving into it, there wasn't a lot of available money to go crazy balla' style so I kept it simple: a bit of champagne, a walk to the top of Sacre Coeur, and watching the countdown from home. My son, who didn't take his afternoon nap, didn't have the energy to stay up til midnight. I had to carry him down the mountain.

THe following next days were spent trying to get my computer to boot. The hackintosh is failing hard since the last chameleon update and the problem doesn't seem solvable. The quickest option would be to backup our data and build a new install but I'm all out of capacity and need a new hard drive.
