The Home Server Show 204

Jim and Dave tackle the news after taking Halloween night off. Some real server news! Dave and Jim discuss moving from 2011 to 2012 Essentials.  Dave needs to do this and use the same hardware.  How to do it?  CES, Cloudberry, Tonido, PogoPlug, Icy Dock, Windows 8 Pro Pack, and some Drobo. Media Center on Windows 8?  How about for free? Lots to talk about in this show!  Enjoy and don’t forget the video!
