    Will OS X ever have anything like Terminal Services found in Windows Server 2003? Not to be confused with a remote desktop type of thing. This would be great for the Enterprise (if Apple ever decides to tackle that). I'm a Citrix administrator and I'd love to serve my network from OS X.

    I wouldn't be too surprised. The XServe shows they want to move into that space (and, as an aside - the XServe+RAID is priced very competitively with *nix solutions).

    Yea, but is there any technical reason why OS X could not offer a feature like terminal services?

    I don't think so. Just look at X11 and its remote window server feature for proof of that. As far as actual implementation goes, I'd be willing to bet that something similar will debut in Leopard, given that iChat will (probably) have a desktop sharing feature.
