Mac OS X Between all the updated MacBooks and Snow Leopard news items across the web, you'd almost forget that Apple also has its own server operating system which will also got updated from Leopard to Snow Leopard yesterday. It benefits from the same improvements as the client version, but of course also has a set of its own, server-specific improvements.

I know a long time ago anandtech did a benchmark run comparing OSX, Windows and I think Linux in terms of server runs but I haven't really seen anyone do it of recent versions. Would be great to see how OSX fairs

Especially since they all run Intel hardware ;)

I dunno. It seems to do just fine. Phoronix ran a good comparison between it and Ubuntu 9.04 and OS X did better to much better in many tests. See here:

The new iCal2 server, built-in Postfix mail server and the group management makes it a pretty viable small office (< 50 users) server, especially if you have a few Macs in house.
