Summary0000042: Support for Macintosh servers
DescriptionAs Linux and Macintosh use similar programming concepts and functions, it shouldn't be too hard to extend server support for Apple Macintosh. As rare as Macintosh servers are, there are still people who use them.

My only concern is how we can test and compile the code for Macintosh. Do any developers have a Macintosh?
TagsNo tags attached.

Keep in mind, to correctly support this, it can only be made compatible with the Intel x86/x86-64 architecture on the Intel-based Mac systems. PowerPC, due to the differing architecture, would likely not be able to support this, unless somehow made usable under the "Universal Binary" Mac OS X standards.

It is likely that any Mac OS versions prior to Mac OS X won't be supported for multiple reasons.

There is absolutely no point to this. Nobody uses a mac server and the marketshare for mac desktops is only 5% of the world.
If you want to port it to something useful you could port it to BSD instead, Mac is a bastardised version of BSD after all plus BSD is used on quite a few servers.
