    seconds seem to go by faster than minutes, but either way it'll take the same amount of time.

    Wonder if 5 days will give us a hint at G5??

    Ok guys could 5 days refer to the G5 in some way to finally get the crowds going absolutely nuts? Guess we will see in a few hours..maybe "gee only 5 days to more power" ??

    I'd better not be…

    …disappointed this time. Apple's really hyping this show. If people react negatively, they'll have no one but themselves to blame this time.

    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.
