I guess if you want an expensive toy.

a.. Tricky Active Directory integration. Not for heavy-work-load
environments.

a.. Bottom Line
One of the most aesthetically beautiful business servers we've ever seen,
this tiny, peppy machine makes for a quiet desktop server that's perfect for
light-duty home and SMB server tasks.

Compared to what? Have Microsoft Home Server without hardware server is
more expensive than a total Mac Mini Server.

Yep!

Yes - weep with laughter. Who the hell would want a Mac as a server
when the operating system that Apple stole to create OSX works much better?

Anyone stupid enough to use laptop hardware jammed into a fanless
desktop to run business applications on needs to retire from the IT
field. PERIOD. No Apple fanbois at PC Mag can change that.

What OS did they steal?

How could they "steal" FreeBSD? From whom did they steal it?

Sorry, I forgot that the BSD licence allows Apple to base a large part
of its OS on open source projects while claiming innovation and all the
rest.

Yup.

And they claim it because it's true. A lot of the OS is from BSD, but a
lot is not.

spreading more FUD, stoopid?

as it so happens, despite all yer claims to the contrary, MeowMan, the
Mac Mini DOES have a fan inside - and I know, because I've had mine
open to put in more RAM!

Anyone that stoopid should retire from life. PERIOD. Too much wacky
tabackky on the brain :)
