I think its ironic that someone would buy a iMac and then go and put Windows on it, I mean the reason for spending more money on the hardware is because its the only way to get OSX Tiger.

:blink: I hat0rz win(M$)d0z but I run it on my ma(tiger)c..? I guess maybe for programs that are only for windows but there are freeware alternatives? :whistle:

It's running fine on Linux, so I expect Windows drivers won't be too hard to come by :)
