    So much for journalism. The product is not available outside of the
    TechNet/MSDN channel yet but this guy wrote an entire article about release
    notes that were obviously not final yet without checking with Microsoft?
    Really? That's journalism? I would have taken a look at the date on the doc
    and said, wait a minute, perhaps this isn't current, and maybe I should
    check with the vendor first.
    Apparently sensationalism is more important than fact checking. Say what
    you want about the product, but this blog post is nothing more than
    garbage.

  • Did you read Sean Daniel's response?  You need to expand all to see it.

    "RE: Before you install Windows Home Server 2011, RTFM (seriously)
    @Ed Bott, it's unfortunate that our beta 1 documentation made it into the RTM content. Right now we're focused on fixing it, then we'll figure out how the process broke down.

    If it's available on Technet, we  DO have a right to expect the documentation to be current and correct!

     Well, I don't know that we have a "right" to expect that the documentation will be current and correct. However, be that as it may, the documentation as it stands is neither current nor correct.

    The quality of this release is not, i think, what we have had in the past.

    Unless you got Technet free and Microsoft told you that technet is a beta site, then you have a right.

     

    Me, I'm pretty sure that paying for Technet makes me a customer... so yeah, I think I have a right.
