Microsoft to launch Windows Home Server at CES?

Windows Home Server at CES

Microsoft will use its aggressive showing at January's CES show to introduce a home server that would function as a media hub for a home network, according to sources speaking to ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley. Allegedly named Windows Home Server, the platform is expected to be a combination of a network-friendly PC with a customized version of Windows Vista that would ease the process of sharing media with computers, the Xbox 360, and similar devices that can tap into Microsoft's Media Center software. The hardware may include media extenders or a special network router.

No specifications were leaked by the source, but if valid the announcement is likely timed to compete directly with a formal announcement of Apple's iTV or other media-related products that could be released at the MacWorld Expo due to begin alongside CES, Foley says.
