Mac OS X At the MacWorld Expo today in San Fransisco, Apple announced new versions of iWork and iLife, as well as an updated 17" MacBook Pro, which promises a battery life of 7-8 hours. More interesting, however, is the fact that yesterday was Mac OS X Server's 10th birthday.

OS X Server on 'The Tooth'

When Steve unveiled the AIO G3 (AKA The Tooth), all I could dream of was running OS X Server on that beauty..

The joy of NeXTStep, the lusty hardware that was the height of the PPC era..

I had clippings on my office wall for inspiration..

I have since had the opportunity to own said configuration, and I passed it up without much wincing.

It's a shame that they couldn't get more support behind it as NT became 2000, OS/2 and Netware were on their way out.

If they could have quietly offered X86 support for the server, while continuing to offer the 68K and PPC client support, we would have seen the shift to Intel much sooner, and OS X Server would be *far* more evolved than it is today.

I could care less about Aqua. Services are what do it for me..
