MacXP

The contest is over. You can now run WinXP on the 17- and 20-inch iMacs, MacBook Pro, and new Mac Mini.

It’s just a question of time before someone manage to run MediaPortal, GBPVR, Meedio or a full Windows Media Center Edition on the new MacMini. A computer that has a seriously cool form factor as a media center. It looks good. It’s quiet.

Throw in two Hauppauge PVR-USB2 and a 1 TB external disk and you have a very nice HTPC.

This could bring a complete Media Center solution with TV-functionallity, an electronic program guide and a large user base to the Mac before Apple gets its act together and completes Front Row.
