mac mini article

Hello, thank you all for reading my article. There sure are a lot of Mac Mini articles out there these days, so if you found my little one worth your time then cool.

Let me respond to some of your comments ;)

Take the moan about the dock, doesn't quite work how he likes, doesn't stretch to either end of the screen, hhhmmmm ttry changing its preferences so that it does that

I don't see this preference. If it's there, please help me find it!

I've found that Unison is a great OSX usenet news reader.

Thanks! I'll try it.

It seems it feels like that [Gui is smoother on Mac] to you. What it really is, is always supported with benchmarks.

Well, it feels that way to me because of the slow screen redraw of my Gnome desktops compared to hardware-accellerated screen redraw on the Mac. I still like Gnome though.

Hasn't this guy heard of a USB hub?

Well, yes ;) I suppose I need to get one....

I think he was referring to all the viruses and adware he's had to help his ms friends with.

Yes! Just got another one today. It's "working way slow." sigh.
