Mummy, can we run Linux at home?

While I would generally prefer Linux as a home server, I have to hand it to the folks at Microsoft, with their promotional book Mommy, Why Is There A Server In The House? (download the 24 MB PDF here) - it's funny.

No, I'm still not going to get a Windows Home Server, but it is amusing.


  1. WHS v2 looks a very nice package to me, especially as I'm running a nice HTPC with Win7. WHS isn't much use for anything else, but the indexing function (that is a basic need for Win7) makes many things that much easier.

  2. Forgot to add - frigging hilarious! That PDF is an instant classic.
