Apple It's the end of the line for Apple's line of servers, the Xserve. The Cupertino giant has just announced that the Xserve line (no more future models, either) will no longer be sold after January 31, 2011, and advises people interested in Mac OS X Server to buy either a Mac Mini or a Mac Pro with Snow Leopard Server installed.

I ordered one for the company, when I was a sysadmin there. The price was OK and you got all software integrated and easy to administer. A nice GUI, a great design of the hardware, I liked it.

I did not like the fact that the ease of administration did come with a cost: it was hard to deviate from the default settings of GUI tools for those settings. Under the hood, they used samba, postfix, dovecot, and so on. But changing the smb.conf file would not result in the expected outcome, because the system would overwrite or ignore the customizations.
