Windows Home Server released to manufacturing

Posted by David Hunter at 1:38 PM ET.

The Windows Home Server Blog announced RTM today:

Today we are announcing that Windows Home Server has been released to manufacturing (RTM). We have finalized the software and now handing it off to our OEM partners. The evaluation version (with 120 day evaluation period) and the system builder version are also heading into the distribution channels and will be available in the next couple of months. French, German and Spanish versions will be finalized shortly, and OEM products will hit retail shelves this fall.

We’re also excited to announce Iomega and Fujitsu-Siemens Computers (FSC) as new OEMs planning to ship Windows Home Server products later this year.

As I mentioned back in June when the release candidate came out, Windows Home Server has some very worthwhile features, but it will live or die with the OEMs who can easily price it into a tiny niche if they aren’t careful. Hopefully at least one will grasp the concept of appliance pricing.
