    We are a group of 5 developers. We are currently using windows for programming. But we are about to develop iphone applications. So we pooled up money and decided to buy a mac mini with lion server.
    Can we(5 developers) work with lion server concurrently using our windows machine? If so, what is the cheapest solution for this?

    You cannot develop for the iPhone on a Windows machine.

    You need to install and run xcode which is OSX only. You're really not getting anywhere by purchasing a OSX server for 5 developers to use simultaneously.

    OSx is a single user OS and is not designed to handle multiple logins at the same time. You could possibly VNC in but you'll be tripping over each other

    Essentially.

    Depending on your IT philosophy, a server may be *0* login machine, e.g. a server provides services, not a desktop environment.
