Everyone is talking about new Consumer & Pro-Sumer products.....
What about full out Professional products??
Apple has been having a hard time with Server X problems in a "mixed" network environment. File Sharing, Email & Printer Server problems & others. A friend of mine thought about getting a new Mac Server to replace an old Winbox in his office network but decided to get a new P4 instead after viewing the support discussions on Apple's site.
I think it would be wise of Apple to release a new "fixed" version of Server X as well as a new line of Professional scalable rack-mount 8 - 12 CPU servers to run it on. That would go a long way to winning over business to the Apple side. Whether they be suped up G4's or better yet suped up G5's running at least 1.2 Ghz+.
On the Win side "Enterprise" class servers cost $20K+, I think that $15K+ for a Rack Mount 8X G5 @ 1.5Ghz with a new working version of Server X would be a friggin steal. I know I would pick one up just for my small hosting biz I run out of my home with my T1 line.
Apache, QT RTSS, WebTools, Dynamic .asp, Mail, FTP, and file server on a 8X G5 that could run the biggest corporate & subsidiary sites plus handle the day to day infrastructure task, without being subject to the latest Nimba or Code Red would be a company sysop's dream.
