The Windows Home Server team has announced that you can now go through an online evaluation of Windows Home Server. There is a temporary site that it is available on, and will soon be switching over the the Microsoft.com domain. I tried Windows Home Server 2011, but found it lacking in what I was trying to accomplish, so I went for the Small Business Server 2011: Essentials, which has turned out to be a great decision and has exceeded my expectations.
Today I am pleased to say the online evaluation experience for WHS 2011 is now ready. This provides customers the ability to walk through both client and server interaction freely, or follow a suggested demonstration path with the evaluation manual which will also launch with the online experience. Available 24 hours per day, it provides a super simple way to experience WHS without the need for SBS hardware,
