I can understand the desire. OS X does have a polished and beautiful

for me, I would want a Macbook Pro with a triple boot of OS X, Win XP
Back to the original topic: James, I'm curious that you had any
results booting with any BSD or Linux. The Intel Macs have no BIOS,
I have read of hacks that got Linux (and Windows before Apple offered
it) to work, but it didn't seem straight forward based on the
accounts I read.
Maybe I'm just experiencing withdrawls from not using FreeBSD! ;)
To try to boot any of these install CD's all ya do is hold down the C
key to boot from the CD drive. Gentoo Linux had no problems booting,
and GNOME actually felt quite fast (this is using the LiveCD). I
think the hacks you read about are for getting an EFI compatible boot
loader setup, or for getting winxp running before Apple's Boot Camp
I got the Intel Mac Mini mainly for the hardware. I like it's tiny
size, low power consumption, and silent operation. I have another OS
X machine at home, so I always planned to install FreeBSD on this Mac
Mini when it was possible. I can get my work done on any system. So
I just like to run the system that I enjoy playing with the most!
