Default Windows Home Server version 2 hits public beta

A new version of Windows Home Server has gone into beta. Codenamed "Vail," the next Windows Home Server release is built on 64-bit Windows Server 2008 R2. Big new features include new media streaming capabilities, improved multi-PC backup and restore features, simpler setup, and richer customization and development opportunities for OEMs.

To download the beta, register at Connect. The beta has a laundry list of known issues, and as with all Microsoft betas, it's not recommended for production usage. The hardware requirements are modest (1.4GHz x64 processor, 1GB RAM, and at least one 160GB hard drive). It'll run happily in Hyper-V.
