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.

My favorite thing they do is when a new OS comes out they drop the earlier version immediately and refuse to port it to the new machines. This makes it a massive headache to buy new machines when you have vendor software that will not run on the new OS, and to top that the earlier version will run, but is missing a driver or to, and the only response from Apple is "Not Supported" I mean come on we are talking about a new OS that is months old, and you are telling me that the earlier version wont run? WTF? And we wonder why Microsoft dominates.

That sounds like a load of gooble gook to me.

I have no idea what "port to the new machines" means?!?

Have you ever used a MacOSX system? I have a MacPro sitting under my desk right now that started of with Tiger and then went to Leopard and now runs Snow Leopard and soon will run Lion.

I really honestly could not work out what the hell you were talking about but it seemed to come from some weird parallel universe where macs worked like Windows PCs.
