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.

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?
