Does anyone know whether we will be able to buy it OEM, and if so, how much?

In the article

There has been no announcement made on when the operating system will be made available to end-users so that they can use Windows Home Server without the need to buy a whole new PC. However, Sider stated that there will be an evaluation edition available that will time out after 120 days – this is typical of Microsoft’s evaluation software.

Good to hear. I was in the beta program and downloaded it, but never got a chance to install it since my XP+Samba shares setup works fine. I'm quite tempted to buy a dedicated NAS box (Infrant ReadyNAS probably) and have been for a while, but all that would get me is a smaller formfactor and AFP shares for the most part (and OS X plays fine with Samba, though NTFS doesn't like some of its naming conventions) which isn't _really_ worth $650+ for me right now. Sure, it's got RAID and all that good stuff as well, but I'm undecided if the cost of the extra hard drive is really worth the extra peace of mind considering I'm now good about backing stuff up that I actually care about.

Of course, the only real reason I'd bother with Windows Home Server is if it allows a filesystem that isn't as restrictive as NTFS (ie, plays better with Macs), otherwise it makes little sense for me to not just keep my setup that works fine right now or go for a dedicated box with a couple more features.

As with most other people, I'll wait and see what the price is, but my Ubuntu box is playing quite happily at the moment.

Wait a minute, are you sure this isn't a hoax?

"simplicity" and "outstanding" have rarely (never?) been associated with modern Windows releases...

and a truely fragile one to say the least. I followed Glider's server guide and it is stable as hell, doesn't chew up resources as if there is no tomorrow and runs fine and dandy even with me logged in locally on X. (old amd 1ghz lappy with 256mb ram) were i to put together a server using a microsoft OS, it would be chugging alone at a snails pace..

Linux indeed.
Though, I have to wonder, if this is RTM, does that mean we can expect it to be pirated soon?

ill stick with Ubuntu Server - tyvm microsoft

Although id be interested to see if you can start picking up 1U/2U boxes for home use

Sider said that simplicity was the key here – his team was very conservative on the feature set and that helped to prevent things from taking endless amounts of development time.
So basically they decided to put f*ck all in it
