  • Question

  • Can anyone tell me about what's new and better in Windows Home Server
    2011? Or point me to a web site with details about it?

    Should I consider moving from the original version to the 2011
    version? If so, why?

    Will Windows Home Server 2011 run on my 32-bit machine, or do I need a
    64-bit one?

    No, it will not run on a 32-bit processor - 64-bit only.

    Ken,
    You might wannt to read this article on WeGothServed?

    For installing Windows Home Server 2011 you will need hardware (and drivers) that support a 64-bits OS.

    No home server like Home Server

    Thanks very much. The article was helpful. I probably won't upgrade
    any time soon, since it will mean also having to upgrade the hardware.
