Windows 7: HP Abandoning Windows Home Server for WebOs

HP Abandoning Windows Home Server for WebOs

" More bad news for fans of little Windows servers for home. HP, makers of the MediaSmart boxes that defined the first release of Windows Home Server, has confirmed that it is canceling plans to support the next major release of the OS, codenamed Vail. This comes hot on the heels of the removal of storage pooling from that release, an extremely unpopular move among the relatively few but ardent fans of WHS. HP is promising to continue support for its existing MediaSmart products but apparently has already redeployed development teams to focus on WebOS devices. For its part, Microsoft will be relying on Acer and Tranquil PC to hang the decorations for the Vail release party. Anyone still care to RSVP? "

Well, that's quite a hit to MS I think. I know a few people who use the HP boxes...including Paul Thurrott of the winsupersite.
