True, but I believe the question was about streaming a DVD from his Mac to an Apple TV, and that's not something that is supported.

You can stream it if you rip it first, but as mentioned above, discussing how to do this is against the forum rules.

Just to be clear, you cannot simply insert a DVD into a Mac and stream it to an...

Are you wanting to boot from the XP partition on the external drive as well? My understanding is that that's not supported. I have no idea why, since you can hold option when booting to boot off an...

It takes ages to load initially as it does some font caching (I think it was at least two minutes on my MBP), but fires up quickly on subsequent launches. Far more quickly than CS2 for sure!

Oh I think a nerve has been hit here with a lot of us. Even more annoying to me than the "unused icon" alert is the sodding "you must reboot because AVG has downloaded an update" message. I close it...

TextEdit is plenty more powerful than notepad. TextEdit would be comparable to Wordpad.

If you need more power, NeoOffice is a great free alternative to MS Office. I have completely switched to...

I recommend Gimp (mentioned in the link from technologist). You have to install X11 from your OS DVD first because Gimp requires it, but it's essentially an open-source Photoshop replacement.

I have to disagree about the firewall. Macs may be inherently immune to viruses, but they can still suffer DOS and intrusion attacks. No modern OS is likely going to be completely safe, and a...

Or again, buying it from Apple and paying an authorised agent to upgrade it later. You're not likely going to save any money this way though -- I see Apple is charging $225 for a 250gb upgrade. The...

If anyone had any information, we'd be seeing posts on the rumour sites. With Lightroom's recent upgrade, my hope is that Apple will do a 2.0 in the next six months, but that's nothing more than hope...

Glad to hear it's working.
