If that's the positioning then they screwed up on the naming of the product. Instead of calling it Mac OS X Server, they should have called it AppleApache. Then the bonus features of Netbooting and AppleShare functionality would have made it look just right.

This is the Apache that Apple would make? It runs on Mac hardware, supports Mac users, but it is not Mac. Also a little advance leaking would have helped them here too. And they could have let developers know that their products are still welcome, assuming they still are. We still don't know the answer to that question.
