Windows Home Server Website Updated

March 25th, 2009 No comments

Possibly lost among the frenzy of the Power Pack 2 release, and the addition of Windows Home Server software to MSDN, was the update today of our very own product website. While clearly not a complete overhaul, we think it’s improved in a couple of key ways:

  • A simpler and more contemporary layout
  • Snappy scrolling graphics that feature direct links to popular pages on the site
  • Redesigned links to Free Eval and Demo pages
  • Added a few more Windows Home Server add-ins to our growing ‘featured list’ page. (Be sure to let us know if you want yours added too 😉

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

Here’s a quick link right to our top page:  www.microsoft.com/windowshomeserver, as well as a snapshot of what it now looks like.

Enjoy!
