Christmas in June: Found out today there’s a very high chance I’ll soon be able to replace the Win2K server that runs the J-School with an Xserve. Possibly dual. I’m floating on this news. Getting very tired of the tools I want to use not working properly with Windows (e.g. the bad netpbm port to Windows just hung up my attempt to get Gallery installed, and the search engine I want to deploy is only free if you aren’t serving from Windows), and even more tired of Windows consuming itself. It’s appropriate for rock stars to choke on their own vomit — it isn’t appropriate for operating systems. The Xserve will integrate with our systems much more smoothly, and I’ll be able to sleep better at night (like Miles has nothing to do with that :). The conversion should be a great summer project … as if I had a shortage of summer projects.
