Mac mini: Windows Vista Ready
Tuesday, May 23, 2006 2:00 PM EST

There has been some discussion in our Boot Camp Forum about whether or not the Intel-based Mac minis will be compatible with Windows Vista. Most of the discussion seems to be centered around Aero, the new graphical user interface in Windows Vista. The Aero interface features translucent windows, 3D perspective, animations, rich texture and more.

According to the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor Beta, Aero will be supported on the Mac mini, but there are a few requirements. You must have at least 1GB of memory installed in your Mac mini and 15GB of free hard drive space. If your hard drive doesn't have enough free space, you will receive a warning telling you what actions to take.

The Upgrade Advisor also allows you to test the compatibility of your Mac mini with the other features offered in Windows Vista. I am happy to report that the Mac mini will support all of the features listed, with the exception of those dealing with TV tuner cards and Windows Media Center connectivity. It will also advise you on what version of Windows Vista to purchase based on the features you select. And that, my friends, is where I called it a day. There is only going to be one operating system in my future. Think Leopard!
