Windows Home Server (WHS) V2 Vail Beta Preview

Posted April 26, 2010 by Patrick Kennedy in Software

As I am sure most of the Windows Home Server crowd has seen at this point, there is a WHS V2 Codename Vail preview posted on Microsoft’s website. Here is the download link to feature previews More information on the public beta and downloads can be found here:

If anyone has used Windows Server 2008 R2, or somehow managed to try the early build of Vail through the public link, you will quickly see how this is going to be a nice upgrade from the Windows Home Server we enjoy today based on Windows Server 2003.
