    Real quick question - I'm familiar with Mac OS X, snow leopard, etc, but ENTIRELY green on the concept of server software. Can someone give me a very quick "Mac OS X Server for Dummies" summary - what would I use OS X server for, and how is this different from running simply file and screen sharing my MB, MBP, and iMac over my home airport network, and having all my Address Book, iCal, Mail etc synchronized via Mobile Me?

    thanks!!

    if YOU are regularly on each of these machines, and are the only user, I guess it would not bring you much, if you say you can synchronize all you need via mobile.me.

    Otherwise:

    Also Apple has a great podcast series of Leopard Server quicktour videos, in iTunes.
