Should also ask about Lion Server
Authored by: zane on Jun 16, '11 04:47:22PM
Looking at the How-to-Buy page, I get the impression that because it is aimed at Server users, it is simply worded as such. The statement "You’ll need Snow Leopard Server v10.6.6 or later to purchase Lion and Lion Server" seems only to mean that you need the 10.6.6 update before upgrading, hence the prompt in Step 2 to run Software Update. Otherwise they would explicitly state that you need to purchase SLS first, which they don't. Step 3 implies that you simply purchase Lion and Lion Server from the App Store, just as you would if you were a Snow Leopard Client user.

I do agree that the page above is somewhat confusing and am not surprised at your concern, but would be willing to bet that a Lion and Lion Server purchase is all that is required to run Server 10.7, regardless of what you're running now.
