Does anyone use, or know anything about, Windows Home Server?

Basically I want to buy a HP home server running this operating system. Currently I use a fantastic little music server (Firefly) on my Windows XP PC which work a treat with one of my little gadgets. Will I be able to install and run this program on the home server? I've been reading around and can't find anywhere if it possible to instal software on this operating system.
Does anyone know?
Thanks.

Windows Home Server is based on the Windows server product called "Windows Server 2003".

So in principle it should work on that Windows platform.

How ever the Firefly web site (http://www.fireflymediaserver.org/) only says Windows 2000 and XP (so no mention of Vista).

I notice there is a forum on the Firefly web site (top left) so why not ask on there.

have you had a look at the QNAP 209 Pro II?

Thank you for your advice! After searching through that forum I have managed to find some posts which seem to indicate it will run. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction! :thumbsup:
