Windows Home Server is dead, but we shouldn't mourn it

There are many casualties of Microsoft's greatly reduced Windows Server 2012 lineup. With just four Windows Server versions, the Enterprise, Small Business Server, and HPC editions have all been discarded.

One Windows Server version that was close to many of our readers' hearts is Windows Home Server. This too is being left behind. The current version, Windows Home Server 2011, is the last ever version. It's not going to disappear overnight'it will be available for OEM preinstallations until an astonishing and not entirely plausible December 31, 2025, though hobbyist system builders only have until December 31, 2013 to buy standalone copies'but it won't receive any new features or upgrades.

Naturally, Windows Home Server's die-hard band of advocates is annoyed by this news.
