Hi, i recently decided to switch to osx and im thinking of buying that small :) mac mini 1.5ghz something something something and keyboard :)
So here i am to ask you mac users about program support for mac. Are there a programs like Trillian IM, mirc client, p2p (kazaa; dc++), and other samelike programs...

another question, mac is so damn expencive i was w8ing for intels to ship with tiger and thought that their will be less expencive than G5's but still my first choice book pro is 2500$ :(
So is mac mini worth of giving 800$, how does it compete other macs, is it upgradable (bad huh), does it deserve to have name "mac" :)

If you can wait, it is probably a good idea to wait until the intel Mac minis come out to get one.

As for the program questions, for IMing, Adium beats anything I have ever used easily. For IRC I use Snak, but there are many IRC programs to chose from. P2P, Limewire is out there as well as other clients that connect to those networks (Acquisition is the first one that comes to mind.)

Hope this helps!
