Mac OS X Server just can’t be taken seriously. Why?
A couple things:
- It can’t be run on commodity hardware, it has to be on a Mac.
- It can’t be virtualized.
- It doesn’t have server virtualization solutions designed to run on it.
To further that, Apple seems to take NO interest in virtualization. I haven’t seen one peep out of them about it. They simply sell desktop-class virtualization products in their store.
So if Apple wants to MAN UP and write some virtualization stuff, then they can be taken seriously.
I mean really. Virtualization is taking the world by storm, and Apple, the company that is supposed to be all hip and such is not participating. Every single product on the current Macintosh line supports hardware virtualization. Apple does nothing with that fact.
It’s sad. Just sad.
