The Mini is quieter than many so-called 'silent PCs.'
Examples please. Why can't we just make some measure, like e.g. 20 dB from 1 meter. One man's definition of 'quiet' is another man's definition of acceptable 'speed', or even 'fast'. That said, i know 'silent PCs' which truely are silent according to my definition.
Overall, though, the desktop is beautiful, fast and very smooth. It's more responsive than a Gnome or even a KDE desktop on a much faster machine.
It seems it feels like that to you. What it really is, is always supported with benchmarks. How do X11 applications on MacOSX relate to X11 applications on e.g. Linux, performance-wise? I mean, if there's no Cocao port. And why was ssh -X slow?
