My guess is that they don't put their top-flight people on either server
development or server support.  Apple isn't know for servers, it's niche
markets being audio recording, graphics editing and consumer desktop and
laptop systems.  I've also observed, with somewhat limited experience,
that Apple doesn't respond to complaints about bugs.  People bitched and
moaned on Apple's user forum about a recent problem with video-induced
kernel panics in Lion (which I also experienced) and Apple never
responded, but the problem was fixed in a subsequent release.

Doesn't their failure to do so violate the GPL?
