Xserve G5s to Replace PowerMacs in 'Big Mac'?

A Slashdot comment offers up an interesting rumor floating around Blacksburg, VA.

The rumor here on campus [Virginia Tech] is that Apple is going to let them trade the G5 towers for G5 XServes, 1:1. So if you are wondering where the first 1100 XServes are going, look no further than Blacksburg.

Now, Slashdot comment postings do not make for reliable sources, but we've since received further word of the same... from those who claim to be familiar with the plans. The migration plan was reportedly part of the original PowerMac deal. The big question, of course, is what happens to the original 1100 PowerMac G5s?
