…not to be named until October! Bummer! Despite being informed that the winners for the Windows Home Server Code2Fame competition would be selected Wednesday, September 26, the competition website is now saying that we have to wait until October to find out who the first, second, and third place winners are. Fear not! I am on “the list” to receive notification of the winners by email, and I will be sure to pass the info along as soon as I get it.
For those still scratching their heads, the Code2Fame was a competition put on by Microsoft to see who could develop the most “original, innovative Add-Ins” for the Windows Home Server. Entrants were to be judged in Software and Hardware categories, and had to meet a few requirements. I like where Microsoft was going with this, and I hope they give good exposure not only to the winners, but to their Add-Ins as well. I want to see what you can do with the WHS.
Although I originally questioned the claims that the WHS would play some role in a home’s automated systems, a few positive first-hand reports have really got me thinking that I might benefit from this back-up behemoth.
