We here at Frontier are still running 10.4 Server as it has met all of our needs thus far.  However, I’m personally excited about some of the little things coming out about Snow Leopard and the Server version.  First, loading printer drivers on demand.  I think that’s an incredibly smart move.  With the amount of drivers for printers growing, it’s a welcome idea to load only the drivers you need when you hook up a printer to the computer.  I hope that this, in turn, will reduce the amount of bloated printer drivers (HP) that we see. 

The second is the increase in support for Sun’s ZFS.  While most people who use Snow Leopard Server out of the box will probably never use it, it’s good to see Apple increasing their dabblings in open source software that can provide useful, cutting edge technology to things like data centers, storage arrays, etc. 

Ars-Technica has a nice write up about these two things
