    Hi m8 cant see MS supporting Mac streaming :)

    If you have an Intel Mac you can use Windows dual boot.

    You can pick MCE2005 up here for £75.

    Normally its only sold with hardware, as its meant for OEM hardware builders, but Microdirect look like they are bundling in a free mouse so maybe that's their way of meeting the licensing requirements for it to be sold with hardware.

    Normally buying something like the MS Remote (£20) is OK. I use this remote with Xbox and it works great for Media Center functions.

    Microsoft holds 50% stake in Apple, so can't see why they won't support it. I guess the demand isn't there.

    Actually, it was 7% and they sold that non-voting stock years ago.

    erm

    The stock they own (or dont maybe) is non voting stock.

    The deal was partially in settlement of Apple suing Microsoft for (allegedly :D ) stealing their OS GUI to make Windows. Fair point I reckon.

    Anyway in the scheme of things Apple currently has a market capitalization of $72.13 billion which by my basic maths means MS hold 0.0002% of the company !
