MacOS X Server ships with Apache, licence for unlimited clients

The first release version of Apple Computer's next-generation OS, MacOS X Server, ships next month with the open source Web server Apache and Apple's WebObjects application server bundled. The OS will also boot multiple Apple iMacs over a network and will be licensed 'server only ... meaning you can have as many clients as you want' for $US995, Apple interim CEO Steve Jobs told the Macworld Expo crowd at his keynote address - after running applications from the server on a diskless iMac.

Jobs demonstrated MacOS X Server's networking capabilities by first running applications direct from the server on an iMac which had had its hard drive removed - and then by streaming several different QuickTime movies to a bank of 50 iMacs.
