Windows Home Server Support

Yes, I know I’ve complained about the poor quality of the support documentation for Windows Home Server before (here, here, and here), but I just keep finding more examples.

The latest is the Solution Center page for Windows Home Server 2011 in the Microsoft Support web site.

WHS2011 60 

It says at the top: “Windows Home Server 2011” and “The solution center applies to current versions of Windows Home Server” (i.e. Windows Home Server 2011). According to the page, it was last reviewed by Microsoft, presumably for correctness, on June 22nd, 2011.

Yet, if you click the link for the Windows Home Server product guide, what you will get is the Product Guide that was issued for version 1 of Windows Home Server in January 2009. So, not for Windows Home Server 2011, then.

And under the Learning More section, the penultimate link should really read “Monitor the health…” not “Monitors the health…” Yes, it’s a little thing, but it seems to me to be indicative of a continuing lack of attention to quality of product.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
