I should add to my previous little uptime rant that now that Apple has the hardware (XServe) and software (10.3 Server) to really make inroads into enterprise space, the uptime issue is going to become important. Rebooting the server for an urgent security fix during production is just not feasible. So non-reboot patching is going to become more of an issue as time progresses and Apple gains a foothold in enterprise space. I sure hope the little elves in Cupertino are thinking about this…
It would actually be pretty cool if Apple bought Sun and got their enterprise expertise. They’re cheap right now.
