Mommy, Why is There a Server in the House?
Do you know
what a server is?
I bet you do!

A server is
a funny-looking box.
It makes friends with computers!

Big people have a server at the "office".
The office is a boring place
where big people go and do boring things.

Offices are why big people get grumpy, and say bad words.

But guess what?
Some servers aren't boring.
They don't go in offices...they go in houses!
Maybe in your house!

How does it get there?

When a mommy and a daddy love each other very much,
the daddy wants to give the mommy a special gift.

So he buys a "stay-at-home" server.

Then he installs it.
It's easy!
He does it all by himself!

Now all the computers
in the house are connected.
Your family can share pictures,
and music, and almost anything else.

You can even share files
with people outside the house!
Like Grandma and Grandpa.
Or your uncle who smells like bark.
Or even...


When you're away from
your house, you can still
connect to the server.

And files don't get lost,
even when bad things happen to your computers.
Because they're all backed up
in a special place...on the server!

Do you think the server is great?
Of course you do!

...not everyone thinks it's great.

Some people think servers should be in offices.
They might make fun of your home server.

And their kids might even make fun of you!
But that's okay. You know why?

Because they're just jealous!
Deep down, they wish
their daddies would buy them
a stay-at-home server, too.

They watch the lights on your server go
blinkety-blink. Blinkety-blink.

But you have a Daddy and Mommy who love you!
And, a Windows Home Server! Does that make you happy?

I bet it does!
