I'd like to run an Xgrid at home to encode video with Virsualhub. I have many macs here at home and I'd like to put them to use since I have many TB's of video to convert. I would like to purchase OS X Server and install it on my home iMacs to be able to use Xgrid.

The only thing I wonder is this: is OS X Server the same as a standard install of Leopard + added functionality or am I going to miss some Leopard functionality, given that the Server version is not intended for home use?

I don't want to buy and install 10.5 Server and then regret it because it has shortcomings for home use...

Can anyone help? Does anyone have experience using OS X 10.5 Server?

OS X Server is a superset of OS X. It includes everything OS X does and more.

Great!
So I should not worry about app compatibility, usage differences etc.?

The folks over at arstechnica might say wait until it is updated.

Those forum posts echo my experience with server. It is easy to get messed up in your setup when it seems like it should be so simple. Is it a documentation problem? maybe
