Forum member Loren has let us know that Windows Home Server is now available to TechNet members and provides a free key to give Home Server a test drive. This is a big step, and I believe that the more people try out Windows Home Server the more people will be won over by the easy storage expansion, automatic image based backups, and remote access features.
I don’t have a TechNet subscription so I can’t verify this, is anyone else seeing the download? Post up in the forums if you have.
Update: Windows Home Server MVP Sam Wood has verified that the software is available on TechNet as well as MSDN, thanks Sam!
Update 3/17/2009 6:30pm: It looks like this was an unintentional release or perhaps testing on the part of Microsoft, as the software appears to have been removed from both TechNet and MSDN. I’ll be sure to update again when we see the software is available online.
