Windows Home Server is a home server solution by Microsoft. The core operating system is Windows Small Business Server 2003, and the Dashboard and an embedded website has been added to it.

This server operating system was released on 4 November 2007 to help families back up important information using a server. It is codenamed "Quattro", based on the Windows Server 2003 R2 codebase. This version was short-lived, ending support in 8 January 2013. It was succeeded by Windows Home Server 2011.

Users can log on remotely, can have personal file shares on the server, and can post images to the web using the embedded website function (Remote Access).

Although the kernel reports Windows Home Server as version 5.2, the version in the Windows Home Server Console is 6.0.

Along with the launch of Windows Home Server, a book was released for publicity, "Mommy, Why is There a Server in the House?"

Sound scheme[edit | edit source]

There is a common belief that Windows Home Server shares the same sounds as Windows Vista, when in reality, it actually uses Windows XP sounds as it was based on Windows Server 2003 R2.
