    Not going to risk the RC, but will definitely going to get a server box for the house when it is released.

    ... and some of that home automation stuff should be pretty nifty too.

    Assuming it will be available unbundled.

    I'm not even going to bother with a non-bundled version. I'm getting myself one of those slick HP machines, and relocate my current WHS machine for something else.

    No, I'm actually going to get a server box. The hardware too. I'm going to stick it in a cupboard somewhere and just forget about.

    Ive got the box, old (AMD 3000+, 1Gb) desktop which I'm going to use for it.  Just need to get myself either 2x 500Gb or 2x 750Gb drives.

    Problem I have is where to put the box....no cupboards empty.

    Ditto. Will probably make the current box a SQL box, or pass it onto someone.

    Lucky you. I have at least 500GB of DVD's to backup before installing. It's either that or re-ripping all of them all over again.

    Backing up and restoring sounds much easier ...

    I'd just like to get the music collection all in one place, rather than have it scattered on machines all over the place.

    And if this remote access thing works, I can get hold of tracks wherever I'm working.

    i had to get another drive to start moving stuff off then used the remove function to get another drive so i can move data to it. was looking at one of those new blue-ray burners to use for backup. 50G/Disk is alot nicer for backups then the 4.7G/Disk.  hey, there is an idea. i should look into backup software APIs and see about making a web interface.
