The Great Apple Snow Leopard Give Away

leave a comment

CNET News reported  yesterday that Apple is giving away Snow Leopard to boost iCloud migration, which is true of you’re a MobileMe user who hasn’t taken the Lion plunge or haven’t yet upgraded to iCloud.

Note the screenshot below. All you have to do is log in to your un-upgraded MobileMe account where you will be offered a free SL upgrade.

Apple’s OS X Server Strategy: Data Centers for Everyone

leave a comment

Now we know that Lion Server will be built into Lion itself, meaning that Mac OS X Server’s code, functionality and services will be bundled with the client OS. Lion Server as a separate entity is gone, but its inclusion in Lion means that a lot more users will get a chance to try it out—either at home or in the office.

Very interesting to see how Apple is handling this. Very different from anything else we’ve seen to date. Real server software for everyman in the same box as your client OS. Pretty amazing.
