The ability for NanoServer to run on Raspberry Pi 2
Having the ability to use ultra-low-cost and ultra-low-power hardware.

Could you not run Windows 10 IoT Core ??? You could also look at the Intel Edison and NUC's which will give you some further wins other than ARM

Related question, what's the cheapest hardware I can buy that will run Nano server right now?

Would be a great replacement for Windows Home Server or to avoid having to mess about with Linux for proper DNS services at home. Better than just RasPi2 would be if this could run on ANY Windows IoT supported platform. The RasPi doesn't have very good IO capabilities (regarding speed), but other boards which are also IoT supported do have SATA and/or USB3. So IoT together with Nano server could be perfect for many home users, makers, microl businesses and even special applications in large businesses.

Its good for a ltlle file server.

really? ultra-low-cost? NanoServer is not free, it is not Windows 10 IoT, you must pay full price license for Windows Server 2016.

This is a pretty big change (since they would have to rebuild this for the ARM architecture) but it would be fantastic for scenarios where a full power server isn't required (IoT relays or something like that).

I agree, this is a fantastic idea that would simplify hardware requirements for small remote enclaves.
