I work with architects. When I started switching client stations to OS
X, ASIP starting giving us fits. These ASIP servers had been running for
one or more years without a hitch then starting crashing, dismounts,
etc... So I quickly switch to OS X on the server. XServe for larger
offices, Share Points for smaller.
Both work well. Xserve (well OS X Server) is a big bite to chew so if
you only need to share files for 10 or less connections, get a decent G4
or low end G5 and put share points on it. And windows users can access
it also. And if you're not sure, put together a system with sharepoints
on a spare box and experiment. Or an external firewire drive and get
things "right" before you jump in. Then use CCC to put it on the real
system and go live.
