"Apple's never been in the big iron business"

Hmm... Everyone seems to have selective amnesia on this one. If you define that as mainframes, then, no. OTOH, Apple quite prominently promoted its G5 as the fastest computer and was very instrumental in promoting the use of multiple Xserves in computing clusters. There were several universities running the top ranked supercomputers in the world based on such clusters. Then there's the heavy investment in Xserve RAIDs. That's where Active (now defunct I believe) came from. If you ever visited the Apple NAB booth in its peak, it was a perfect example of heavy iron running behind the scenes. For a long time, Apple had a very active enterprise sales team, which included both sales and engineering support. That's why many network and large facility installations invested heavily in Apple technology. Not because the staff editors convinced management to buy FCP.
