What are some benefits of a home serever?
I am considering purchasing a server for our home. We only have a couple of computers but I think a server would be nice to have. I already have Windows Server 2008 and am just curious of some of the cool things a server can do. Anybody have a home server they are using? Thanks.

what exactly are you looking for a server can do lot of things but am not sure of you qustion as you said you have windows server 2008 , and it does have many freature already on it. what a are you looking for.

GTK................
you can create you own intranet which have web sites email, notification system,dns ..... account control .................... every thing that you can think of using a server ..... but ..... i really did not understand wat cool feature are you looking for.......

please dont mind i like to spend money wisely and suggest the same......

note you already have the latest server in the market.. if you are home user one server with a good of processor and mem should do you job of setup everything, dc.ac. ftp websites everything that is what i would do my only problem is i do not use windows much... recently move to linux so a newbie in linux.

Depends what you mean by a server. I run servers for HTTP, SSH, DNS, DHCP at home which are useful for testing stuff, apart from that's the way my home network works. Having a webserver makes it convenient to share personal photos or videos without taking hours uf upload time to copy them somewhere else.

If you mean a media server, the ads say it's cool to stream videos and music all around your house (but opening it up to the public would be illegal for licensed media)
