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.

and moved OS X Server into the Mac Mini and Mac Pro.

What's the problem, again? Other than a rack mount option being gone, what's the problem?

The problem is what you've already stated. They've gotten rid of the rackmount option, thus rendering it useless for most server rooms.

Yeah, but at least it LOOKS pretty -- and isn't that all that matters to Apple designers?

They've also killed their Java work, just announced a feature set for Lion that trends towards ios, and just killed xserve. It seems as if Apple is changing its priority away from my own set of priorities.

Logically, for developers, it seems like the OSX app store is the way to go as Apple's desktop/server offerings as they seem to be on the way out eventually.
