HP Says Goodbye to Windows Home Server Market

Now that HP owns Palm, it's been made it clear they have little interest in selling Windows Home Server boxes. Zero interest, actually—they've announced they're selling the rest of the inventory they've got, and never looking back.

The news could be bad news for anyone looking forward to buying an HP box equipped with Vail, the newest version of Windows Home Server—and certainly a disappointment to Microsoft, with one less vendor to spread the software around. Microsoft is taking the breakup graciously, albeit with an "It's not me, it's you" approach, claiming "This news is in no way related to recent announcements about feature changes in Windows Home Server "Vail."

This is disappointing. I have a home built WHS and was considering buying an HP box when the new Vail versions became available. The less computer tinkering I have to do at home, the better.
