I’ve always looked at the XServe in awe. They where the most beautiful designed rack servers I had ever seen, and not only on the outside. I dreamed of once owning my own, but alas hat i not going to happen anymore. Apple just announced that they are discontinuing the model. Everybody wanting to run a server will have to choose a Mac Pro or Mini for running OS X server.
I think it’s a pity that this is happening, I hope this does not mean that in a few years we won’t have a OS X server version. As that is still the best solution for running an OS X server. I’m only showing the cheap alternative here.
