Kind of a weird comparison, but a timely reality check. I've been using WHS RTM bits for a couple weeks and am eager to buy a WHS box when they ship. I'm also looking forward to exploring WHS add-on apps/tools/services/etc.; I expect there's going to be a vibrant market for WHS home/SOHO scenarios.
Run down the check list:
- Relatively quiet development period, followed by short and seemingly successful beta. Check
- A product that users actually want and understand. Check
- Potentially cool form factors. Check
