Cons

  • For non-Apple clients, using iCal and Address Book servers will not be as consistent of an experience due to other platforms lagging Apple’s level of support for CalDAV and CardDAV standards
  • For companies with a mix of PPC and Intel servers, upgrades could become complicated due to Mac OS X 10.6 Server being Intel-only
  • Limited in-house customization available for Address Book Server services
