Mac mini is finally a proper, officially sanctioned OS X Server

This is just too freakin’ sweet. Apple has just ripped Windows Server a big one. This $1k gets you an unlimited-client license for OS X Server (which not 3 months ago cost you a full $1k itself), two software-RAID-able hard drives, and plenty of juice for most small-business needs.

Just for comparison, Microsoft Small Business Server starts at $700 for a 5-user license, and that’s just the software. And OS X Server is way easier and quicker (thus cheaper) to set up.

I’m further impressed that, on the configure-to-order page, Apple points directly to a 4-disk Promise RAID device that should be almost as cool as a Drobo.

This box should do a lot to spread OS X Server all around the world, which is great for the whole Mac admin community.
