Keeping on top of all the updates, new versions, and happenings with Windows products, operating systems, drivers and the like is a challenge for everyone. In our labs here, it can be quite a learning experience just to walk through the many stations to see various combinations of software and hardware interaction. I use a combination of our internal R&D labs, official Microsoft and vendor sites, and a wide range of forums and blog sites to try to keep on top of all that's going on.
As we make final preparations for our next PerfectDisk 10 build, I was reviewing the improvements we are making to the PerfectDisk 10 for Windows Home Server installation procedure. I got to thinking that there are some really useful sites for WHS users that are packed with information and even give away WHS-related products from time to time.
For any WHS users, if you aren't already aware of the resources out there, I thought I would list a few:
- Windows Home Server Team Blog, managed by the WHS team at Microsoft
- We Got Served blog, run by Terry Walsh
- MS Windows Home Server blog, run by Philip Churchill
- Home Server Blogfor the German WHS community, run by Christoph Dommermuth.
If you're setting up a Windows Home Server environment, thinking about it, or have one already and just want to keep on top of the latest developments, I've found these to be some great resources. I'm sure there are other favorites; these are just some I've found particularly useful. As always, remember to defrag your WHS environment!
And you might even win a prize along the way.
