Windows Home Server Beta 2

With the video that I posted here on the Bleeding Edge blog last week showing Windows Home Server the team behind WHS are opening up participation in the Beta 2 Milestone of the product.

"We can't guarantee you'll be invited to participate right away (or at all), but if you're interested get yourself registered. Keep in mind that Beta 2 does not really represent the "consumer experience." Most consumers will ultimately buy Home Server as an integrated hardware/software solution that's very plug and play, e.g. the HP MediaSmart Server. Beta 2 is software only, of course, meaning evaluators will need to know how to install and configure a server operating system. Beta 2 participants will also need a dedicated machine for Home Server - Pentium 4, 512 MB RAM and two or more internal hard drives with at least 300 GB primary system hard drive is recommended - and at least 2 client PCs and a broadband connection."

To get involved all you need to do is head on over to the WHS Beta program on Microsoft Connect and fill out a survey then kick back and wait to see if you get accepted into the program. There is also a Windows Home Server Forum setup at Microsoft here.
