| MacOS!? Aww...come on, who wants that slow and clunky POS running their HTPC. :) j/k|
Honestly, I never even thought to look into HTPCs from a MAC perspective. Maybe you are onto something here...
Actually, it's funny that you would call MacOS slow and clunky in comparison to XP (I am assuming...)
Quite the other way around, you will find that XP is a gigantic resource hog in comparison to OS X... and if you think XP is bad, just wait until Vista :) I'm not flaming here but I think you have been lead astray somewhere along the line!
There is a lot of great mac htpc stuff out there-- I am in the process of converting an old Mac SE case (circa 1990) to house a Mac G4 cube as my htpc system, and it is pretty sweet so far.
My concept for the Mac SE HTPC is that any DVD or CD you insert will get ripped and ejected and added to my media collection (400 gb storage)... it's all IR remote-controlled, and has reduced a lot of clutter by replacing my old nintendo systems with emulators. I even found a super nintendo USB controller on ebay :)
definitely worth checking out.
