About a month ago, I switched my server from Gentoo Linux to Windows Home Server. I have quite enjoyed the new platform. I love how tightly it integrates with my other Windows desktops (and my Xbox …if I had one). I can pull up Windows Media Player and access any media on the server directly. There is also an external web page that allows me to connect to the server or other desktops on the network remotely. I have even found a plugin (Whiist) that enables easy configuration of the web server. All in all, I am very happy with the switch.
Remember that wonderful Image Resizer PowerToy Microsoft released for Windows XP? I have recreated it and now it will also work on Windows Visa! This is an incredibly useful tool that allows you to mass-resize images just by right-clicking on them. Click here to download Image Resizer PowerToy for Windows Vista. Enjoy!
