    Default Using Windows Home Server in place of Vista

    I found and then lost the URL to a site which showed using WHS and a OS
    to replace XP or Viste.



    Anyone remember this url?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Windows Home Server is its own OS, not a replacement for XP or Vista.

    I ordered for the free Windows Home Server Trial from MS as they are giving free DVDs to try for 120 days. Still waiting for the disk to arrive. Hope it will be as good as Vista.

    Windows Home Server is based on SBS 2003 - AKA Windows Server 2003 - AKA
    "Windows XP". You would need to obtain Windows Server 2008 to get a server
    operating system that is based on the same code as Vista is.

    That's true. I am also using Windows Server 2008 and it is quite good, and sometimes even better than Vista.

    Thanks much for the reply's. I had forgotten that the Server I was
    looking for was Server 2008.

    It is a worthy upgrade to Windows Server 2003, which itself is very good,
    and much better then Windows Server 2000, as it has quite a lot of very cool
    new features. On the other hand, whether Vista offers anything useful over
    XP is rather dubious.
