4D will be providing users with information regarding their upcoming WebSTAR Server Suite V for OS X. OS X's robust Unix underpinning's make it an ideal server platform, and WebSTAR has been among the Macintosh leaders in that field for years. According to 4D:

The Mac Observer Spin:

WebSTAR has found a home among many Mac users, but will truly have an opportunity to shine running on top of Mac OS X. If OS X catches on as many believe it will, applications such as Apache and WebSTAR will be big winners.
