Take this from someone who's used Macs in 1987 and has a house full of 
them. Mac OS is even more closed than
Windows. It's beautiful, elegant and... proprietary.

Consider the following:
1) take a look at the freenx project. It may redefine remote access in

2) PIIIs from 933 and above can easily serve 3 or 4 clients.
