Earlier today I went looking to see if MSDN included Windows Home Server. Well, it doesn't include it. I looked in the "servers" section, the "operating systems" section, and when that failed I asked Google. I read the Official MSDN Subscriptions Blog, which contained a post about Windows Home Sever. It seems that including Windows Home Server was considered and rejected. Thanks to the post on that blog, a lot of feedback was received requesting its inclusion as well as information about why it was not included. Thanks to an update on that post, I know that a year ago they said they would be reconsidering it based on the feedback.
I still don't see it as an available download, but luckily there has been follow up information on the issue. Philip Churchill posted about WHS Coming to MSDN a couple of months ago. Now, I sit around waiting for Microsoft to deliver this awesome product to their faithful MSDN crew. I just used one recently, and it is very easy and nice to use. I now see what all of the hype has been about. For once I think the hype was not exaggerating the product. At least not much.
I look forward to the release of Windows Home Server on MSDN. I hope you do also, since I will most certainly write about it once they release it.
