Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Apple's MacOS X Server is alive and well, and will ship by the end of the year, the company claimed yesterday, seeking to scotch rumours that it had cancelled the OS. "As Apple has said, MacOS X Server is on track to ship this year," company spokeswoman Staci Sheppard told US Web site MacWeek.com. Apple was forced to make the statement by claims made on several Mac-oriented Web sites that an Apple representative questioned at an Apple Austria press conference in Vienna said the project had already been cancelled internally but as yet no official statement had been made. This despite the heads of Apple's Austrian and German subsidiaries presenting at the same conference a MacOS roadmap which included a Q3/Q4 release slot for MacOS X Server 1.0. The unnamed spokesman's comments came in response to a request for a more specific date for the OS' release than the one given in the presentation. ® Click for more stories
