Was able to do a quick Mac OS X Server install on a Quad 2.0 (standard config).
I didn't have much time to play around with it yet, but one thing surprised me a bit: it was very loud (louder than the Xserve G5 IIRC)
Not that it matters becasue Xserves will usually not be used in someone's office or living room ;) , but I thought that as the Mac Pro was so incredibly quiet that this Xserve wouldn't need that much fan noise.

Top of the loud list: Xserve G4 :p
