Yeah I found the answer after googling alot like 10 seconds ago... At least that solves some of my woes of misery for not buying the C2D instead of the CD

Ah... *Shoots kitten*

I don't understand why people think Leopard will run any differnt on a CD, then on a C2D. If the speeds are the same, it will be the same.

Well it is a 64bit vs a 32bit proc... and less cache. So i think leopard will work faster onthe C2D...

and the core 2 duo is a faster processor in terms of how it was built, not something most people will notice, but it is faster mhz 4 mhz.

Yonah is only 32bit however, not 64bit compatible as said above.

64 bit is something for the future. There are '64 bit' processors out there, but a bit ahead of their time. Windows Vista x64 is awkward and plagued by problems and the vast majority of copies sold (and programs written) will be 32 bit for some time to come.

There's no 100% way to tell how easy it will be, but if it's anything like the last renditions of OS X, it will be very, very easy.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

I just finished installing Vista on my Mini and it wasn't hard at all...it took a little while longer, but was not difficult.

Vista is easy to install, so is Xp, dont see why it seems so hard, click and go.

any 64bit windows O/S is iffy as drivers support isnt out yet for many things, at least not official, most bugs right now for 64bit vista are driver related.

Well, you leave XP to install and come back twenty minutes later and it asks for your licence. You come back later and it asks for where you live and then you come back later on and it asks about more stuff. So you can either sit there for 45 minutes, or comes back now and again and it takes 3 hours!!

yes true, Vista gets that out of the way in the start, OSX does it, but is smart and does it all at the end in one shot.
