Now I have to use external boot drives as well as external data drives.
I'll have to see what I can find for a 256GB Thunderbolt SSD, maybe I can still make this work.
I'm still pissed about the XServe, I'd really like to be able to buy one of those with two to four modern 12 core Xeons, dual power, modern full-GUI LOM, and 8 2.5" drive bays. I have clients who wouldn't blink at dropping $6-12k for that, depending on config. I don't want trash can...
