ARS Technica has some more information about Microsoft's Windows Home Server. Here's a short snip:
What's in the box? There's the obvious stuff you'd expect to find in a "Home Server," like securable file and print sharing that you can centrally manage. Home Server does not provide a centralized Active Directory, as you might expect (that would be overkill, to say the least). Instead, Home Server will sync user accounts and passwords between client machines and the server, so if "Jonboy" changes his password on the downstairs PC, that change will sync to the Home Server..
