View Full Version : Would ADC Select get me Leopard Server?

I want to get Leopard Server to start learning the ins and outs. I could just buy it for $499, but I'm wondering if the $499 ADC Select membership would allow me to download a developer version of Leopard Server. I know they have a pre-release of Snow Leopard Server, but I'm not interested in that.

Any of you ADC members know the answer to this?
Thanks,
Lee Tom

You get access to the currently shipping version of server (10.5 Leopard), but is licensed to only use for development purposes. The license is also only temporary, and the development serial expires after a period of time. So you will need to keep renewing your membership to continue use.

Hope that helps.

That's perfect! It'll just be on my home Mac Mini for playin' around, so that's perfect. YESSSSSSS!

If the server software is the only reason you are getting the ADC select, then why do it? You just have to spend 500 each year, instead of once. Unless you want to use the account for something else as well.
