A small company I am working for has a 100% macintosh network. I have
been pushing for Linux on the server side, but recently they brought in
a macintosh consulting firm for a quote. They of course are talking up
the benefits of using Mac OS X Server over using Linux. Compatibility
and integration into the network being one of the benefits they keep
The server will need: Large Raid drive file server, e-mail server, web
server, DNS, LDAP.
The client side needs to remain macintosh-based (at least for now).
I don't have any experience with OS X and thus find it difficult to make
a case against it, besides the obvious advantage of "freedom" in a
Linux/Open Source solution.
Any thoughts and wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
