    What does it mean? We will use Windows server 2012 to do the backups?

    Thank god for this. Windows Home Server 2011 was the worst thing that I have ever tried in my life.
    No wonder why they have dropped the prices to ridiculously low, they just want to get rid of the damn thing.

    No, the features of WHS 2011 will be available in something called "Windows Server 2012 Essentials".

    Sorry you didn't like WHS jaguar.


    WHS 2011 works great for my needs, especially the piece-of-mind having full backups that can be restored (even to other machines) easily.
    Also w/ this little add-in called "Drive Pool" I can add more Hdd space whenever I want

    I am definitely going to keep & continue using it.
    I'm pretty sure MS dinn't make much money off this OS though.
