Imo, Apple would stand to make more money if they actually licensed their OS out properly to standard x86 hardware. The yuppies would still buy the overpriced chromed white ****, and the rest of us would have a professional, viable alternative to Windows which doesn't require a kernal rebuild every time you want to install a sound driver.
Thanks Pooky. The Dell has everything working. I'm curious about usability though -does stuff fit onto that tiny screen? How does it run on the hardware? (I'm not convinced by what I've seen from the Atom chips). Whta's the spec of your netbook?
Well in general just about everything. But for the mini I'm just looking at backing up images while I'm travelling and doing keywording/annotation while things are fresh in my memory. The thing is, all the windows and linux apps I've found so far to do this with really suck. And the one windows app that doesn't completely suck is far too resource intensive for my Compaq.
