You know, in spite of it's network throughput issues, MacOS has a couple
really nice features, including incredible drive portability, you can
generally take a drive out of a Mac, stick it in a different model Mac,
and turn it on and it comes up without a grumble. In fact our web server
(PMac 9150/120)croaked, some kind of Motherboard/Memory problem, we pulled
the drive, stuck it in a 6150/66 and turned it on, came up without a
grumble. Yeah, it's a small webserver, not a lot of traffic, but I can't
think of any other machine that would let you move a hard drive to
different hardware without some kind of rebuild.
I am very curious if OSX will keep this kind of OS durability to go along
with it's other improvements.
