[Anand] In-Depth with Mac OS X Lion Server - Page 2

post #11 of 32
OS X Lion is amazing. The Server version is also great! Especially for the price (for both of them)!

Yeah I dont know why you would use a OS X server for anyways. Windows and Linux basically covers everything I need. Linux for Web, Windows for dedicated game servers.

Anyway the OSX server is kind of pointless at this point for anything except a home server. They currently do not have any server hardware at this point. Unless they configure the new mac pros with LOM and dual power supplies.

There's really no reason to use this over other operating systems unless there's some Apple software on an end-user machine that ONLY works with the services this OS provides, and there are no alternatives.

Once you use a Mac OS as a server it loses all benefits it might have had in the UI department and so on. $50 for a server? What a catch! Linux is $0, and it's probably easier to setup a Linux server than an OS X server.

You have no idea what you're talking about, do you? Yup, thought not. Let me sudo grep all my drivers on Linux while OS X is up and running in minutes. Oh, darn, Video driver doesn't work well with this distro of Linux. Well, let's just find a different distro. rolleyes.gif

OS X and it's server are quite usefull, despite what the trolls say.

OS X Server can be used for anything you want. Deployment of images across a network, administration of workstations, file station, remote desktop, network monitoring, firewall, etc. etc. etc.. Pretty much anything you need and want from an Administration point of view.

My comment wasn't directed at you, core2duo, so I hope you don't take it that way. I understand that you have a legitimate question and that's all good, it's others who have no idea what they're talking about.

Last time I used server was back with Panther. Used it to deploy images across several machines at once, and it was super convenient and easy to use.

Why would you have to install a video driver or X on a Linux server?

Anyway, OSX server will be good for those in smaller networks with mostly OSX computers. It can possibly integrate with Active or Open Directory. For basic SOHO use, it seems adequate.

I was about to ask the same question. Looks like double standards, hypocrisy with a generous helping of cluelessness. Some people never learn.
