Mac Mini… Server?

I don’t know how I missed this, but it is quite intriguing. Apple introduced a Mac Mini Server in October – running Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server.

This is fascinating – and makes it just that much more affordable to run Mac OS X Server.

ComputerWorld discussed the Mac Mini Server at the time, but also had an article just this week about how the Mac Mini Server is an excellent choice for the home office.

There is also macminicolo.com, which has provided Mac OS X Server on Mac Minis for a long time. The really nice thing about macminicolo.com is that you can purchase the system over time and they keep it on the net for you. I still want to sign up with them… some day… sigh.

New operating system releases!

This is just amazing: did everybody coordinate this? Within the last three weeks or so, we’ve seen these releases come out:

Several of these were released on the same day, November 1.

What next? Am I really supposed to choose just one? Sigh. And I just installed OpenBSD 4.1 and Fedora 7, too – not to mention installing FreeBSD 6.2 not too long ago.

From all the talk, I’ll have to try Kubuntu again. So many systems, so little time.

I have been using OpenSUSE 10.3 (with KDE). I just love it – and I love the new menu format, too.

Update: Sigh. I should have known. Microsoft Windows Vista celebrated its 1st Anniversary on Nov. 8.
