My hope was always that - make something that CAN fit in a 19" rack if it has to, even if that is not the main usecase.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

There does still seem to be some demand for them. Apple calls MacMiniColo whenever someone is taking down a big Xserve install and they buy them all up happily.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Also, for the first time, it was during WWDC, they say "Kaby Lake" more similar to "Baby Lake" than "Kah-bee lake" Why would they pronounce it like "Baby Lake"? Eeeww! That's a personal annoyance and I had never heard anyone pronounce it that way before. People, call it Kaby Lake (as one would start to say "Cabbage").
