Windows Home Server – VAIL
Over the last week a number of websites and blogs have been talking about the leaked build of the next version of Windows Home Server, codenamed Vail.
Basically, an internal build of Vail has managed to leak onto the Internet.
We here at Using Windows Home Server, along with a number of the other WHS sites, such as We Got Served, have had lots of emails from people wanting to know more about Vail, or wanting us to post links, pictures, etc.
I’ve been going back and forth over the last few days trying to decided what, if anything to say about all this.
As a Windows Home Server MVP, I am under an NDA which means I am unable to talk about products that are not out yet (depending on what Microsoft have already released information wise to the public) and I am also asked not to talk about certain things when information leaks – and this is one of those times.
Terry over at We Got Served did a post last night that sums up our position perfectly – nice one Terry!
So, to sum up, until such time as Microsoft release public information about Vail, I cannot, and will not, be able to talk about it. That isn’t to say I don’t know anything about Vail, but I am under NDA and so cannot talk about it.
And a warning to all those who are downloading this leaked build – be careful what you are downloading, torrents are often filled with spyware, trojans and viruses.
So why not wait until Microsoft release an official test build at some point in the future?
When information is released about Vail you can rest assured we WILL be talking about it!
If you want to talk about this you can do so in our forums, but please do not post screenshots or links to download sites or we will have to remove them
