Server worth it for me?
I was wondering, is OS X Lion server worth getting in my case. I've never run a server version of any OS before so I'm a bit hazy on the real benefits.
My current home IT setup is this:
A couple of Windows 7 boxes for gaming
My iMac (the main machine of the house, a mid 2010 i3)
A couple of Core Duo Macbooks.
An iPad and a couple of iPhones.
Is there anything I'd be able to do using server on the iMac, and by the reverse, anything I'd be stopping myself doing. Now obviously Lion's a bit NDA at the minute so let's assume I was talking snow leopard, just for arguments sake Pros and cons?

I'm not sure what you could achieve by running a server version at home. Maybe iCal/Mail/address book etc if you didn't want to pay for MobileMe? - but then iCloud will have all of these for free anyway...
Maybe the only thing it would be useful for at home for would be as a file store accessible from all of your machines? And as a backup location?
