As we've mentioned previously, Marco has been working on a Storage Media Server build for a project showcase at Symantec's Security with Speed site.  The purpose of the site was an effort by Symantec to create awareness that their new Norton Security 2009 product has been completely engineered from the ground up with speed and low system resource utilization in mind.  As a side benefit to their campaign, the Security with Speed site is also a pretty good resource for multitude of PC tech info, including HotHardware's contribution to the Storage Media Server project that Marco has been working.  Today we offer you the next installation of BigWop's video journal on building a home Storage Media Server...

Windows Home Server is a very very easy OS to get used to ... I would rec. it to anyone use for a home server system that may not be familiar with Linux distros or command-line interface.

Marco I like the build -- I really want to get something like this going for myself (silent PC)
