yeah, that's too big to justify for this one thing. Plus I don't have a VM hypervisor running, and I do not want to install one.

comment Building Unix/Linux programming environment for a Windows developer
The key problem here for you is getting the Linux version going. Once that's functional, programming will be simple. I'm going to vote to move your question over to www.superuser.com, since it fits in better there.

comment Snow Leopard Requirements
@nsd: If you're not doing os-specific development work, a lot. If it wasn't for the fact that many programs require 10.5 now, I'd be quite capable of going on for the next few years. Current versions of Perl, emacs, g++, mono, all work on 10.4. Any web development work in the LAMP stack is going to work with any system with a good text editor and an internet connection. That said, I don't do OS X specific development at this point in time.

comment Snow Leopard Requirements
I'm not manually upgrading a mini. The apple store can do it. I'm just seeing if I need the memory to maintain the same performance characteristics on 10.6 as I get on 10.4.

there's a fair amount of anecdotal remarks on cds not lasting particularly long.
