  • Question

  •  It would be nice if the betatesters could actually buy a copy of the Home Server software straight from Microsoft instead of having to deal with NewEgg or some other vendor who will want us to buy some hardware to quailfy.

  • The hardware requirement (as far as Microsoft's concerned) was done away with some years ago. There are still a few vendors out there that won't sell a system builder package without hardware to go along with it, but that's on the vendors, not Microsoft. So if you find that vendor A wants you to purchase hardware, I think your best bet is to vote with your wallet, and patronize vendor B. Smile
