    I think we all know how frustrating it can be to hear about a product over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. Or, to hear about a feature that is later removed.


    I am sorry, I have very little self restraint... it kind of sounds like Longhorn Vista Tongue Out Don't hate me Wink

    Just found this interesting tidbit that claims to be "100% fact"

    Home Server owners will be able to set up a free internet address, like username.homeserver.com, to remotely access their servers.


    Found at WHS Details

    perhaps we can attach our own custom domain as well?

    More interesting info (that actually kinda sucks because we're being forced into having to buy Ultimate).

    Some features are only available with Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista Business (or higher) systems, making the only way to get certain features is through Vista Ultimate. In other words, Home Server is going to be a major reason to buy Vista Ultimate, and Media Center aficionados will have to have at least one Ultimate PC to use certain features I can’t talk about and take advantage of Previous Versions.

    I thought the same thing for a lil while but realized that given that WHS will be remotely accessible, there’ll likely be a free DNS service made available for owners of WHS that gives em an A record to find their way home... and likely an MX record will be thrown in for free so that you could use Windows Live Custom Domains.

    Sure it’s not Exchange, but it’d be a heck of a lot more reliable than your email server being on a dynamic ip address.



    I could have sworn during the On10 video they said that a free domain was going to be included to provide access to your WHS ...so yeah, perhaps Windows Live Custom Domains with Windows Live Mail is a OK option, but definitely not quite ideal. I guess we'll see.

    I find both of those options to be out of the question.

    So, I edited.

    You are right, I do apologize. I guess it was just one of those "I am so excited for this product" and then to have some of the info be left out just felt...something. Anyways, I apologize.

    To be honest, I am quite impressed with this WHS, but I was really hoping for some kind of minimal Exchange support. I would love to have easy access to Outlook Web Access and all the other wonderful benefits of Exhange. Also, I was hoping for the possibility of roaming profiles which would have been a cool addition for multiple home computers.

    Either way, this is a great product, but I do also think it will be a hard sell right out the door simply because "normal" people associate anything Server with complexity.

    Also, do we have any kind of 100% confirmation on if this software is going to be available separately for custom builds? Their seems to be a great deal of confusion regarding this on the web. Some sites say yes, software can be purchased separately (Such as Paul), and others say no, it won't be available outside of OEMs and system builders.

    So any final definitive answer?

    Peronally you killed this video for me with this censored crap. I don't think I've ever watched a channel9 video that was censored like ths...truly sad.
  • Julie Larson-Green - Diving into the new Office 12

    Wow. I love the new UI...when I first saw the screenshots this morning I thought i'd hate it, but having seen it in action in this video has totally changed my mind. Can't wait to try it.


    Quick question, will these "themes" be CSS based or what language will we need to learn to be able to create custom office/corp themes?

    That would be great, Thank you



    [Update] I tried what he does in the video...I added a DWORD called "Buttons" with a value of 0 and it didn't work. Hmm... [/Update]

    What is the Reg hack that he did to remove the buttons? He did it too fast to catch what he was doing. Thanks for any information
