This just in! Congratulations are due to our friends at Hewlett-Packard, whose MediaSmart Server 487 product took home a coveted Engadget Editors’ Choice award for ‘Best Storage Device for 2008’.
We like to think our Windows Home Server OS had a little bit to do with the award. ;-)
It’s certainly nice to see the industry recognize quality products.…Here’s to many more awards!
Sorry, I couldn’t resist the alliteration. ;-) My enthusiasm must have boiled over after seeing all the great reception we’ve seen to the Power Pack 2 update and the MSDN release this week (we’ve counted close to 50 mentions in articles and blogs). So thank you, Home Server community for spreading the word!
In case folks haven’t seen these, here’s but a smattering of some of the articles that have been posted this week. It’s clear that the Media Center tie in enabled by Power Pack 2 is getting the bulk of the press, followed closely by the addition of Windows Home Server to MSDN.
Engadget even featured us in their weekly HD Podcast, which was nice.
And there are many more, so my apologies if I’ve omitted any others that are worth mentioning. Which articles would you want to share?
Have a great weekend everyone!

We encourage you to come check it out and let us know what you think.
