Windows Home Server

  sustech 15:26 07 Sep 2008

I recently purchased a Tranquil PC to use as a computer which I can leave on for outside connection and not use much power doing so. It came with Windows Home Server installed.
I have been trying to phathom out what this OS has over just installing XP. Not too bothered about the network backup facilities, as I have a reasonable backup setup already. What does the windows console do, apart from setting up the backup?

Can anyone give me any pluses that this OS has?

What does it have that makes it a server?

I take it I can run an e-mail proggy on it and VPN to it?
