Sounds more like a cheap way for MS to take control and watch (all by remote) of personal networks. I personally see nothing about this other than the cheap price that makes it worth having. Sorry guys. I can do the same things with almost any other computer connected to my network already.
You can do , but everybody cant be a geek like you to do it, that too an average HOME user.
What you can do is, taken care by Windows Home Server helping a Home user to do.
I think, if its taken care of properly, in promoting WHS, it'll be a huge success in years to come.
