Infoworld author seeks to switch to XServe


After switching to an Apple PowerBook last year, InfoWorld reporter Tom Yager is planning on making his switch permanent and following it up with a change in servers.

His plan is to move to an OS X-running XServe, followed by adding a second one in a cluster.

According to Yager, the XServe is a rock-solid Unix machine, but he will be using the BSD functions so as to avoid becoming too dependent upon Apple's proprietary software and interfaces.
