Mac OS X Server

A server edition of the Mac OS, Mac OS server, based on BSD Unix-based operating system software Apple Computer acquired from Next Computer formed the basis of the current Mac OS X.

Prior to OS X, Apple's Appleshare[?] services provided server applications such as file and printer sharing and user management.

As of version 10 of the Mac OS, the server and the standard version are nearly identical; OS X Server mainly adds server management software - web, mail and user services. Most of OS X Server's services are based on standard BSD tools, for example the Apache web server; OSXS adds a GUI interface to these services. An exception is User services which are based on (Next) NetInfo.
