Even if youï¿¼re not ready to pony up the $500 for the ADP Select subscription, you should sign up right away for the free ADC Online. Thereï¿¼s a lot of great information in their occasional newsletters.
My favorite non-Apple sites for support are Mac OS X Hints and MacRumors. With them, you have to filter out a lot of ï¿¼noiseï¿¼ about consumer-electronics gadgets, such as iPods and iPhones, but thereï¿¼s still plenty left about Macs.
The Mac OS X Hints site, in particular, has excellent information about application compatibility, bug fixes and workarounds, and server deployments. I follow both of those sites via their RSS feeds.
Finally, if your users have Microsoft Office on your Macs, the folks in Redmond maintain their own blog, Mac Mojo. Again, you should consider subscribing to the RSS feed.
