Xserve may help Apple

Macs are still going strong in the graphics and digital media markets, and now the Xserve may help as well, according to ComputerWorld: "Yet despite significant efforts by Windows suppliers, Apple still remains a dominant player in vertical market segments such as publishing and digital media. And with the growing popularity of its low-cost Xserve Unix servers, Apple has an opportunity to compete head-to-head with industry leaders like Dell Inc. inside the data center for general-purpose applications such as e-mail and Web serving....Not surprisingly, according to research from New York-based TrendWatch, 83% of graphic designers, 77% of corporate design departments and 65% of advertising agencies rely on Macintosh computers. And publishers also continue to depend on Apple's machines."

    I'd love an Xserve. But they are so expensive, I had to make an older G4 tower my first Company Server. But my next server will be an Xserve no doubt.
