Microsoft Distributes Home Server to Partners

This month, Microsoft made its Home Server product available to its partners. After a very rough start with a nasty data corruption bug, Microsoft released a major update (referred to as a "power pack") during the summer.

This month, Microsoft released another batch of updates addressing more bugs and anomalies.

Although the product is aimed squarely at families, Microsoft is now gently suggesting that its partners offer it to home and very small offices.

We going to err on the side of caution with this product. While it has great possibilities and tools to make computing easier and simpler for micro-offices, this is the second batch of fixes that address file system and data related problems. Will this round fix all of the important issues?
