I'm Wondering where I can buy/download a copy of Windows Home Server 2011. I would like to install today.

I know I can go to eBay/Amazon and buy it. But it would be nice if I could do it today.

Microsoft says:

Get a Windows Home Server 2011 computer

Windows Home Server-based computers are available in a number of configurations and designs, and from a broad range of manufacturers. Availability varies by country and region. Please check with your retailer for local availability, or check out some of the recommended servers below.

Building your own server

If you're interested in purchasing software to build your own Windows Home Server system, please check with your software retailer for local availability.

Doesn't look like they sell it themselves at all and mostly want to bundle it with computers.

WHS is not available on http://www.microsoftstore.com/ at all.

You can download WHS 2008 through Microsoft's Partner Downloads, but this exclusive for business partners. @user231465 –  slhck May 6 '12 at 10:26
    
It's also available for MSDN subscribers, but if you were a subscriber, you probably wouldn't ask (cc @slhck) –  Daniel Beck May 6 '12 at 10:47
