    About to buy a Mac Mini...

    Ok,

    Im about to go buy a mac mini, it will be my first mac. I've used OS X enough to udnerstand a good portion of it, but here are some things im not sure about:

    1) Can OS X read my Fat 32 external drive? What about reading NTFS drives?
    2) Has anyone ran Zend Studio on a mac? WHat's it like? is it complete and utter crap, or is it ok?

    If you have a mac and are willing to give Zend Studio a shot, PM me and i'll get you some details.

    Thanks everyone,
    Eric

    1) Yes to FAT32 and NTFS, for reading. OSX can write to FAT32, but I haven't heard good things about anything other than Windows writing to NTFS.

    2) Not sure, I'll leave that question to someone else.

    I don't want to write to NTFS... merely get the important stuff off my backup drive.

    As for Studio, i'd be willing to *cough* try it on there box...


    Also, another question: what's it like running apache / mysql on mac? It doable?
