But most knowledgeable enthusiasts would rather have a "linux box" something
to be proud of!!

Windows is boring and to easy, plus if there was an easy install for Ubuntu
on a samba server then more would adopt it (which is in 7.10), but I think
people will get scared off by the commandline versions as they wont
understand that it can be administered remotely.

I think the most interesting thing is that Windows Home Server is
designed for people who aren't uber techie. It's aimed at the
knowledgeable enthusiast market.

That's kinda what I meant I saw Ubuntu as a potential replacement for
(perhaps with a bit of configuration etc).
