  • You can buy a system builder package from many e-tailers, including Amazon.com and NewEgg. You can't, however, buy a downloadable version online.

  • Why Not? Are we stuck gfor ever with WHS original, and have to buy a new hardware to get a new version?

    What is Microsoft trying to achive with no upgrade path?

    I think you misunderstand. You can buy an OEM WHS2011 Installation DVD - around US$50. There is not a download version.

    You can not upgrade a WHS1 installation as that's a 32-bit OS and WHS 2011 is 64-bit, so it's a fresh installation.
