So pretty much they are scrapping their whole 1U server division completely and telling you "we don't do this anymore, go buy one of our desktop systems instead"?
I guess their niche that was carved out for the Xserve went away after they went x86 and suddenly they had to compete with the many, many other 1U server solutions out there from people like Dell, HP, and IBM.
I don't know if I'd put Dell in the same category as the others. Apple makes nice hardware, and so does IBM and (some of) HP. Dell is ... OK and cheap.
