    OS X Server is a friggin server software. Meaning it has the look and feel of OS X, but instead of all the iApps, you get server software to serve to other computers.

    A bit rude, but he's right.

    Also OS X server comes on different macs, like the XServe. It does exactly what you think it does.

    OS X Server and OS X Client are based on the same kernel and can do exactly the same things.

    OS X Server gives you certain additional things:

    •GUI tools to easily modify Apache/File Sharing/Print Serving configurations
    •Quicktime Streaming Server
    •WebObjects

    You can serve a website on OS X Client, but it will take lots of work in Terminal do make it as powerful as OS X Server.
