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.

Good argument. I'd always wondered the same thing. People who bought them, said they were for managing macs. Didn't really understand why. It just has outdated versions of open source server apps, for an exorbitant price.

I wonder what Pixar will do now, they were probably the biggest user of xserves.

Wasn't there a post recently that Pixar is using Microsoft's Cloud -- Windows Azure?

It was news to me. It seems to me these two news items are not unrelated.
