I'd heard that, thanks. Is there anything in particular that I would want 5.1 over 5.0 for?
My plan (so far) is to have 2, possible three VM's running:
2) Some OS running nothing but Plex Media Server
3) Potentially the HTPC with some CableCard to serve as the 'hub' for three extenders (though it is doubtful more than two will ever be used at the same time).
I have some curiosity for trying out Linux (like Ubuntu or something) so I might add another VM now and then to try that out, but probably nothing running long term there. Only other thing I could see myself setting up would be possible a web host. Right now I serve up a photo album and contact manager using the WHS2011. I've had no compelling reason to split those off (especially since I am using the free homeserver.com address to get access to it outside my lan), but maybe at some point I will.
