There's talk of 3rd party add-on for Vail. There shouldn't be any problem with running WHS V1 for another couple of years, so who knows what will be available by then.

This doesn't look like it's very in depth, but it's supposed to offer some kinds of alternatives........

Nobody knows for sure until they see the new beta -- whatever it is it'll be up to the hardware vendor (or system builder) to implement it.

Lastly, on a related note, HP has announced that it'll be discontinuing the Mediasmart Server line at the end of the year...
