    I am seriously contemplating the Mac Pro Server.

    The reason is for development and I want to use it for the following:

    The usual OS X Server features (iCal server, web server, email server....)
    Ubuntu VM
    Windows VM
    Linux VM

    I want to be able to distribute disk images when new machines are added to the network, test applications/ web sites on each version of an OS and browsers, create a staging and testing VM of the final web server and so on...

    The question is, can OS X Lion/ Mountain Lion server do this natively or would I need to use VMWare, or would I be best buying an ESXi / Windows VM Server?
