Computex Taipei has become the largest technology exhibition in Asia and second largest in the world. (Trivia buffs: CeBIT in Germany is the largest) The expected Computex attendance is a staggering 270,000 visitors! This show attracts people from across the computer industry and it should come as no surprise that Microsoft is participating. What may be more interesting for readers of this blog is that the Windows Home Server team is attending this year. Taiwan is an important region for research and production facilities and Windows Home Server is working with many local hardware and software companies to drive innovative digital home solutions. Here's a peak at some of the Windows Home Server activities happening at Computex.
Windows Home Server is featured prominently in the Microsoft booth. Today was a "technology buyer only" day at Computex. Tomorrow the show opens to all attendees and the booth traffic will be hectic.
Windows Home Server was featured prominently in the keynote presentation "The Digital rEvolution" (spelling oddity by design) by Steven Guggenheimer, Microsoft Corporate Vice President OEM Division. I have not seen any videos posted yet but I can assure you the product demonstration was good. The HP MediaSmart Server was displayed on the stage. (Sorry for the picture quality, I was seated pretty far back from the stage.)
Watch for more dispatches from the team this week!
Have you seen Edgar Voorbraak's Home Server toaster yet? Imaginative, cool, funny...just like the Home Server community, in general.
Here are the specs. Home Server Hacks has more info and pics.
