User-agent: Internet Messaging Program (IMP) H3 (4.3.9)
While I am not such a regular poster to this forum, I do read it, and
every so often it strikes me that certain topical areas are surely due
some level of comment from me. As such, indeed, it is worthy of
notation that while on a superficial level it may seem apparent to
everyone that "server is really no different from than OS X Client",
this is likely not so much the case on a more microscopic level.
While I do have a MacMini Server, I am not sure if iLife comes with
the Server of hand or not, but while the kernel maybe the same code it
is surely tuned differentially from the manner by which the kernel is
tuned for client operations. Given that there has been a comparative
offered in emails previous of Linux, one need only look at RedHat (for
example, though there are others), noting that the Server variant of
their product vice the Workstation variant have entirely different
tunings and configurations of the kernel notwithstanding its being
entirely equitable in terms of source code from which it is derived.
I did not read the totality of the "Lion" preview notes, so I ask,
what precipitated the idea of a merged OS? Is this the path that Apple
is now enunciating that it will take? If so, I think it is actually
quite an intelligent move, since it seems that Apple is defocusing on
a specific server product per se watching them withdraw their current
offerings from marketing.
