Mac Mini: The Emperor’s New Computer: Attention: Before you rip the living hell out of this guy, please remember that he went to DeVry. And he has an MCSE.
The Mini boots up into a stripped-down operating system which Apple calls OS X, similar to the stripped-down WindowsCE OS found on many handhelds. The mini OS is going to be a significant hurdle for many buyers who are used to Windows or have favorite Windows software packages they need to use. Think of it more as a first computer for your daughter or niece than as a machine to get any serious work done and youâ€™ll get the point of the Mini and its target market. It might also be the perfect computer for grandmothers or autistic children, for example.
