I also haven't found it to be particularly *good* at anything; I'm not
an OS X guy, and maybe that's part of the problem, but I found Snow
Leopard Server a lot more comprehensible in a "this seems really un-Apple-
like but at least it makes some sort of sense" way.
OS X Lion Server feels like someone just bolted on random bits of server
management stuff. If you've ever managed a server with a poorly
integrated control panel, it reminds me a little of that.
I believe that there are plenty of people who ditch OS X entirely and do
other things with them. I wish ESXi would run on them. I could see
*uses* for that.

With 24 million small businesses in the US alone, that's way too many apples.
