The Best Microsoft Servers Are Like Moms: Barefoot And Pregnant

"When a mommy and daddy love each other very much, the daddy wants to give the mommy a special gift.
So he buys a stay-at-home server.
Then he installs it.
It's easy!
He does it all by himself."

That's the crux of Mommy, Why is There a Server in the House? a PR stunt of a children's book published as part of a Microsoft/HP campaign for the Windows Home Server.

Now everyone in the family can share up to 1Tb of data and files, except that Torrent applications have some trouble, and there are at least half a dozen Windows Vista applications that will corrupt files backed up on the WHS; I'm sure they're working on it and will have a patch available soon.

I bet Microsoft would be more than happy to publish my home server based storybook, "Mommy, Why Was Daddy Up All Night Trying to Turn Your Old Laptop Into a Linux-based Media Center?"
