 A Linux user buys Mac mini

This is basically a review of a Mac Mini written by a Linux user. Interesting perspective and well written.

"But that's not the reason I bought a Mac mini. The reason why I refuse to buy another PC is that today's PCs are built for stone-deaf speed nuts who think it's normal that a CPU must generate more heat per surface area than a stove, and require something that sounds like a jet engine to cool it lest it disappears in a rapidly expanding plasma cloud. I was looking for an unobtrusive and quiet machine that I can put on my desk without going deaf or getting sunburned. And I don't care about gigahertz ratings when I do desktop work. I get all the horsepower I need for 3D rendering at work."
