One reason I will own a Mac Mini

Among the many, many reasons that I will ensure that a Mac Mini is purchased this year are:

  • I want a DVR, but don’t want to let Tivo or whoever decide to shut out something with DRM.
  • I want a dedicated box to manage my digital media, including music and video.
  • I’ve used Macs for a long time for business related things (photo editting, layout, etc.) but never owned one. It’s about time.
  • There is amazingly freaking great software like Delicious Library out there, and it’s NOT for Windows.
  • It’s got BSD underneath the OS, and it’s trivial to run linux programs from a command line.
  • OS X has built in support for a webserver, file server, etc…
