Unless you’ve been hiding in a cave somewhere (or just maybe working really hard this week) you’ve probably caught some of the incredible buzz for Microsoft Surface, unveiled at the Wall Street Journal’s D conference this week. USA Today tech columnist Andrew Kantor says Surface is the “second product in a row (following Windows Home Server) to ‘just work,’ a la Apple.” Kantor wrote about Home Server last week, too:
“Even if you only have a single computer in your home, dedicating an older machine as a WHS is a good idea simply for the protection against hard disk failure and the ability to pool your drives.”
ZDNet bloggers Dan Farber and and Larry Dignan also connect Home Server to Surface, saying the two could complement each other. What do you think?
