Apple Linus Torvalds has picked up one of Apple's new Intel-based Mac minis to play with, but the Linux creator still prefers Apple's old PowerPC architecture for his primary desktop machine. "I'm actually still running a G5, but I also have a Mac mini," Torvalds revealed today in an e-mail to ZDNet Australia. "I like the design, and it's the right form-factor to be a replacement machine for my wife and daughter, but sadly, Apple screwed up the firmware in various stupid ways."

Never heard of anyone having problems with EFI myself...

It works for Mac OS X and thats pretty much all you should expect from a Mac, anything else should be considered a bonus. They aren't actually selling 'PC's after all, despite the use of Intel processors.
