Do you need OS X Server?

CNet has a good overview here about whether OS X Server makes sense for a small business, particularly a Mac-based business. Their conclusion: "if you would like to centralize the management of any of these services for multiple computers and provide more dynamic means of accessing these services, then it's likely you need a server. You don't necessarily need to use Apple's Server package: since OS X is Unix-based, it can be configured with other server software, much of which is free and open-source, but this usually requires advanced server and Unix knowledge."
