    • "This web site sets out to answer a single question: "On technical considerations only, how does Rhapsody (also known as Mac OS X Server) stack up as a server operating system?" The main emphasis will be on comparing and contrasting Rhapsody and Windows NT, the main server OSs from the two largest operating system companies, as well as an emphasis on UNIX in general (Rhapsody being one of many versions of UNIX). Other operating systems discussed will include: AIX, AmigaOS, BeOS, BSDI, Digital UNIX, FreeBSD, GNU Hurd, HP-UX, IRIX, LINUX, Macintosh, Mac OS X, MS-DOS, MVS, NetBSD, NetWare, NeXT, NeXTSTEP, OpenBSD, OpenSTEP, OpenVMS, OS/2, PC-DOS-2000, Pyramid, SCO, Solaris, Sun-OS, ULTRIX, UNIX, VMS, Windows 3.1, Windows 95, and Windows 98.
