Default Apple Sticks a Fork in Xserve Enterprise Platform

Apple's been pimping its Xserver enterprise equipment for more than 9 years, and for the past 2 years, the platform's been running on Intel hardware. Not anymore. As of Tuesday, Apple officially retired its server line, a decision that has been met with mixed reactions.

"I understand the decision. The truth is, I don't think Apple ever sold a lot of Xservers," said John Welch of The Zimmerman Agency. "I don't have to like it. I don't have to agree with it. I understand it. I just think it sucks."

His reaction isn't necessarily indicative of the majority. Citing a survey of 1,200 Xserve IT professionals, The Register says Apple's move has been met with a resounding 'meh' by mainstream users. "People are going to keep their Xserves for a long time," Reid Lewis, president of the Enterprise Desktop Alliance told The Register.
