Bill Gates Announces New Windows Home Server Hardware and Software Partners at WinHEC 2007: Code2Fame Challenge to showcase software and hardware add-ins for Windows Home Server.

Check the press release for more details including an initial list of software vendors building offerings for WHS. 

In his keynote address at the Microsoft® Windows® Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) 2007, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates today demonstrated Windows Home Server and announced new hardware partners for the upcoming product, which include Gateway Inc., LaCie and Medion International. The company also announced that it will release a version of the software for system builders, named eight independent software vendors that will provide applications for Windows Home Server, and revealed its plans to kick off the Code2Fame Challenge for developers to create Windows Home Server hardware and software add-in solutions.

I've been using the WHS beta for several weeks and will purchase a new WHS box as soon as they're available -- it's a great back-up, media sharing, and remote access device, and I'm expecting the 3rd party app/add-on/service market to be quite active.
