That's the deal-stopper for me. I recently installed OS X on a partition on my Powerbook, and I like what I see. but I won't install it on my workhorse desktop machine or anywhere else until Airport for OS X includes the Airport Software Base Station functionality I rely on.

    If you need to just communicate locally computer to computer, you can by creating a network from the Airport menu.

    An Open Source project http://airportswbsx.sourceforge.net/ offers more functionality for OS X 10.1+

    Finally, a little blurb in http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/ seems to imply that OS X 10.2 Jaguar returns the OS 9 Software Base Station functionality. Hmm, I guess that means you'll be ponying the money up for the upgrade. ;-)
