Another hole in the "Apple costs more" myth. Xserves are better AND cheaper!

"if Xserve Xeon were stripped of the logo, the aluminum and the trappings of Apple culture, it'd be hailed as a server design breakthrough."

One of the bright points in my life was seeing the look on a business owner's face after he thought he got a smoking deal on two Dell rackmounted servers only to discover that he had to purchase $15,000 worth of software and licenses from Microsoft for his Exchange Enterprise and MS SQL and Windows.

I wish that Apple would emphasize their out of the box costs versus other Wintel platforms more.
