Sorry, just to be clear - my complaint is not that there's lots of versions - realistically, Dells of this world will offer only Home Premium on the home sku's with windows 7, unlike now where on some machines it's Home basic, some Home Premium and others have a choice.littleguru said:One comment on Engadget said it right:
I also do like how each SKU is a superset of the previous one.
My big complaint is that Home Premium does not come with Remote Desktop, which is absolutely unbelievable when you think that Windows Home Server is SPECIFICALLY aimed at home use, but one of its major features - remoting in to any desktop, isn't going to work with the home version of Win7, just like it doesn't work with Vista Home today.
So, to realise the full potential of Windows HOME server, you've got to use an OS that isn't the HOME version. Much as I dislike Apple, they wouldn't screw up this royally...
I just wish Microsoft groups would talk to each other more and think of the bigger picture.
Hopefully, as I say, the WHS guys will address this somehow - either with an update that gets Remote desktop working if you have WHS, or maybe the next version of WHS software will do something more amazing.
