Apple Home Server?

I knew it wouldn’t take long for someone to figure out that the Apple Mac Mini is an interesting platform for running Windows Home Server.  The Home Server Hacks blog has a detailed step-by-step document of how to re-purpose a Mac Mini to act as a home server.

Forrester recently published a paper entitled, “The Future of Apple Inc.”, that stated by 2013 Apple would likely ship a home server product.   If you are a diehard Mac enthusiast, you don’t have to wait 5 more years, you can run the Windows Home Server operating system on a Mac today !!!

    Dear HST,

    nice! And what would be really nice is the ability to backup an Apple computer running OSX on WHS. Can you tell us when that capability will be available? I believe that would greatly enhance the marketability of Windows Home Server based systems.

    Best Regards
