And exactly how many customers pick OS X when considering a new server?

Answer: Nobody... It is such an marginal OS on the server it doesn't even count.

I'm not being narky, but would you seriously waste money porting to an
OS nobody is going to use? If they think it's worth canning support
for all those Superdome servers out there, I can't see a sudden rush
to support OS X. :)
