    Since with Mac OS X Lion, there is no longer a separate "Server" version, would it be best to combine the Server forum with the general Mac OS X forum?

    Thoughts?

    I say no. There are many people that won't be upgrading their older Mac OS X Servers to Lion and they may want the Server section. It's also good for those that install the Server app for Lion.

    Even if magically every Mac OS X Server updated to Lion, I wouldn't want threads about server configuration, issues, services, etc mixed in with the general OS discussion.

    That's how I'm looking at it. It switches from "OS X Server OS" to "OS X Server App". I think the separation still makes sense.

    Even if it was renamed we'd keep the separate forum, since it's also for networking issues.

    From Apple's press release:
    Mac OS X Lion will be available in July as an upgrade to Mac OS X version 10.6 Snow Leopard from the Mac App Store for $29.99 (US).

    Mac OS X Lion Server requires Lion and will be available in July from the Mac App Store for $49.99 (US).​
