OS X Software Updates – Bloated

Remember when Microsoft use to put client type of software on their server OS (Paint, Games, etc…).  Windows Server 2000 had all kinds of things already installed that it shouldn’t have. The Microsoft people got smart and locked things down in Windows 2003 Server.  This is a good thing.  Your server OS has no need for these things, especially installed by default.  Apple needs to do the same.  I vnc into my OS X Server today and discover OS X Software Updates wants me to install a iTunes Phone Driver update.  iTunes on my web server?  Ahhhh no thanks. 

Can you image if Windows Update next week included a Zune update for Windows 2003 Server? Kinda of hypocritical of their new Mac commercial with the Windows guys comes out bloated, dontcha think?
