I just read about this new OS on Digg. Apparently Windows Home Server is available on Newegg for sale. My first thought on this is WOW, just wow. $180 for ANOTHER windows OS. I will agree that it appears VERY user friendly, as it should with such a price tag. Now, I posted this for two reasons. One, I'm wondering what everyone else thinks about this. And two, my first thoughts upon seeing this were; what are all the capabilities of Ubuntu Server and FreeNAS? Since I've been tinkering with open source for a long time but have always remained a noob (I've never really had an extensive experience) I'm not completely aware of all the possibilities of the open source servers and if they have the ability to automate windows backups. So what does everyone think about this new WinHoSo (Windows Home Server)? (doesn't Windows 2003 Server, etc have these abilities as well?) Could FreeNAS or Ubuntu Server be setup to handle these tasks easily (without expert open source installation experience)?

I'm eager to hear everyone's opinions..
