I installed windows xp pro on my mini today. I cant stress enough how much smoother minions of mirth runs with the windows 950 drivers. I am able to run the game on high and its runs almost perfectly smooth all the time. You can use up to 224 megs of ram for the video and wow does it really help out. I have 2 gigs in my mini, so I have the ram to spare and it is well worth it. On Leopard im stuck with 64mb and have to run the game on low and it is still choppy. I dont like running windows, so I hope they change the 64mb retriction.

They won't

What sucks is if you purchased a first generation intel mac mini. You can only use 128 megs of ram in windows for graphics card memory and 64 megs in mac os x leopard and tiger.

Which sucks if i knew that apple was going to update the mini to support bigger hard drives and more ram and more graphics power under windows using boot camp i would have waited.
