This might sound crazy but I have been converted alot of my apps from a dual xeon 3.0 to my mac mini. I use my mac mini usually for email and surfing within the XP-OS. But anything dealing with photo, video, and webpage, I have been using OS-X, ilife. I totally love ilife.

I think I can safely say I do the most intense work possible on a mini that hasn't been modded.

I run:

-Cinema 4D, my trusty 3Dmodelling program
-iTunes
-Soundtrack (trying to save for Pro)
-Pro-Tools
-Final Cut
-QT Pro
-Adobe CS (mainly PS, Illustrator, and Imageready)
-WoW

Some of these tasks I do simultaneously, some I quit everything, including Finder (Thank God for TinkerTool.) I am planning on going into studio work and film-making and you just can't argue the fact that all the hardware in any studio, there's Apple.

I am one of the quiet converters. I won't argue, fight, moan, and yell about PC users and get involved with the flamewar... I just put my mini in my bag, take it to school, jack a KDM, and work on my stuff.

Right now mine is just a fancy DVD player (or wanna-be HTPC):

I have the original MM, but it now has 1gig of memory.
Amazingly, this little box is doing Adobe CS2, Painter, FileMaker, MS Office, Adobe PSE 4, and other things. It does a wonderful job.

I want to see the second generation of Intel minis before I upgrade.

Why would you bother upgrading if the current model is doing "a wonderful job"? I plan on keeping my G4 1.42GHz machine for a long, long time. I say that now and I will probably buy a new computer within a year, just because. But I think the G4 mini will suit my needs for many more years. Is there any particular reason that you might upgrade?

After all of these years messing with computers, I know that I'll be searching for a new computer 'ere long ... it's my carrot at the end of the pole. But then again, with all of the great software that I have that does so beautifully on it, I may just decide to be happy with it!!

One of the reasons it runs so well is because I seldom open more than one program at a time ... I just don't need to do so.

My greatest joy with my MM is that my photos on the screen preview as exactly what comes off of my printer. I love messing with photos, and this environment is heaven for me.

I have a chance to purchase a G3 Powerbook (no firewire) for $100. It's in working order: 384 megs of memory, 6 gig hard drive, and needs a new battery. It's in excellent shape, but I cannot figure out what I could run on it!!

This is the first Mac I have owned in about 10 years. I bought it exclusively to use as a music server. So for me its all about iTunes and the iPod I have connected.

I use my G4 1.42 for surfing the web, e-mail pic's and getting into movies. One of the reasons I've not switched to the intel. I really enjoy the one I have. Like Apple says it just works.

I'm surprised you're developing this kind of software on a Mac. Does it get ported over to Windows for field use?

Since it's Python/Tkinter I write everything so it will run on Windows, Linux, Solaris and Mac. We mostly use Linux boxes in the field, but they are such a pain in the neck to deal with I'm not sure how long that will continue before there is a revolt. Smile

I use my mini G4 1.42 as the main computer downstairs. It was [i]my[/i] main computer until mid-April when I got my MacBook Pro.

It's used for iTunes, email, web surfing and buring CDs and DVDs (external dual layer LaCie DVD drive attached).

I use mine mainly just for an internet access device. I simply wanted a computer that didn't require constant maintenance and worry about viruses.
I do have music on iTunes, but I rarely listen to music anymore. I have a superdrive, but I find it easier, faster, and much more straightforward to simply use my set top dvd recorder since I do not edit much. It is probably overkill for what I need, but it does what I require.
