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.

I think Thom meant the big enterprise server market.
I cant see a big companies kitting out on it's brand new $3000 Mac Pro servers. Imagine the budget.

They definitely still have the small to medium sized companies in mind.

That is a pretty beefy GPU in there - I hope some time in the future they take advantage of it such as using OpenCL for SSL/Encryption acceleration and other really cool stuff ;)

Apple was never in the Big Enterprise market with XServe.
