Do you have Windows Home Server?

I'm planning on putting together a home server, mainly for media sharing. I was just thinking about a NAS but then I came across Windows Home Server (I had never seen it till now).
Has anyone had experience with it? It sounds like it's good for backing up, but what are the media sharing and other features like?

I know there's reviews and blurb on the net about WHS but its always nice to hear some first hand experiences.

i am currently using windows server 2003 and it has options to use it for windows media server and a file server. these are just two of many options and with windows sever, you can have loads of machines around the house and be able to log into any of them and get all of my documents just by logging in. I have used it to stream videos to other machines around my home.

It looks like I'm flogging a dead horse here lol. But if anyone could enlighten me once more.
Is WHS a standalone OS or does it piggyback on an existing one? From what I've read I'm a tad unclear
