  • I'm serious when I ask this:
    • Why would you want to?
    • Can you get rid of the MAC gui and use OS X as a real BSD-like server?

      this isnt intended as a flame just trying to explain.

      Why would you want to: alot of people who do web design work on macs it would be nice to be able to have slash installed on a local computer to play around with the templates before making changes to the main site.

      Can you get rid of the mac gui: Yes you definitly can, you can install Darwin on any supported mac hardware which is the open source (under the apsl) core of os X or you can just type >console as the user name in the login window and itll drop you into a normal command line interface (i think the default shell is tsch). and just to note, I remember reading that darwin does infact have impressive performance numbers for tasks like apache and other server applications, its just Aqua and the other stuff that sits ontop of darwin in os X that gives the operating system it's reputation as a dog in terms of performance.
