[apple.com...]

$499 in the US, 339 in the UK (according to the BBC [news.bbc.co.uk]), but it's bring your own Monitor, mouse and keyboard.

Very tempted myself as it will be running OS X v10.3 - based on BSD as any Mac techie will know, and will hopefully be VERY QUIET.

Going to download Darwin and blow out OS X.

Please post here again to let us know how that goes. If you're planning on quantifying the performance boost you get by stripping out Aqua, I'm interested in that, too.

Yep, I wonder how long it'll be until someone comes up with a product to rack or stack these machines.

Perhaps this is what Apple's new X-San software is for?

You can use that software to work as a spider, it's great, provides logs etc.
