But of course that has nothing to do whether OS X is a server operating system, it can well-handle the tasks that would be delegated to a server. It even had some rack-hardware produced by Apple, for a time.


True.

However, Mac OSX is only a minority bit player in the OS market, and for this reason (in the popular sense) Mac OSX is not considered one of the mainstream server OSes.
