I don't know the answer to your question, but don't think it's a  
crazy one. One of the most interesting things I've seen, lately, is a  
hosting company that uses stacks of Mac Minis running OS X Server.  
They may not be the thing for mission-critical services, but for day- 
to-day web hosting, they are far better (IMHO) than the typical  
WinTel or Linux white box systems that fill colo facilities. Need  
redundancy? Plunk down another $500 bucks! One of Apple's coolest  
products, I think.
