Hi,

I just got my wireless squeezebox and my new graphic display * now itıs time
to decide whether to install it on a mac or pc box.

The pc is amd athlon 2400+ with 512 megs ram or Mac G-4 running 10.3.2 with
960 megs ram and 1 ghz processor.

I am probably going to rip songs via a lame encoder and am quite new to
tagging and that stuff. All I know is that itunes will automatically tag and
maybe all ripping apps. Will do so as well. I donıt know which computer
takes more energy to run * I do hate to not let a computer sleep just so it
can run the server, but thatıs the breaks.

Thanks for your tips! Maybe some of you out there have installed slimserver
on both platforms and have opinions.

Jim,

My first question would be, what computer do you use more often? If
one gets a lot more use (not for music), I'd use that one.
