Re the 32G recommendation - would it be possible to install Windows 10 or even 8 on a 16G Mini 9 with 2G RAM?
I currently have 10.5.8 Mac OS and I suppose an alternate would be to go to 10.6.X, if Mac OS would be faster than Windows.
My thought re Windows instead of Mac OS, is that it would just be easier to get it installed and fully working compared to Mac OS, plus of course it's supported with updates from MS etc.
But i'd say most important to me would be the best performing OS & basic apps. Music, Video, Web etc.
I appreciate 16G is very tight, whichever way I go, I'd still use the SD slot + USB ports for storage.
Great to see the site still here and actively running btw.
