my main problem with this at the moment is the inability to control with the mouse. i have a griffin powermate but that only gives you a max of 6 keys that you can emulate, maybe enough to fully control the app, but i would prefer being able to fall back on touch if need be.
Check out the new version of NAS, a cross platform music frontend here
Okay, I tried it. I meet the system specs (Intel 1.66 mac mini with 2gb of ram) but all that happens is it launches with a blank white window in the center of the screen.
The users guide doesn't match the version of the software that I must have downloaded. It refers to the Preferences menu choice while my version only has an Advanced Preferences choice and no apparent way to set the resolution.
I'm running it via screen share. That could be the problem. I'll try it connected directly to a monitor after work.

I use plex as my front end for my Intel based Mac Mini Media center on my 52" LCD in my living room.
As a medic center its great, i can seamlessly run 264x 1080P HD video and control the whole interface with the Mac Mini Remote.
HOWEVER its amazing for video/tv shows, but I find the music interface lacking and extremely annoying to use. I would not recommend this in a vechile just for this purpose it takes to long to navigate through all the music and decide what you want to listen too. This could be a major issue for me only because i have 150+ gigs of music, but at the same time, id have that in my car.
So my vote is NO for automotive use at this point. and YES for at home use. If your into home theater, id recommend looking into an intel mac mini based media center with a plex front end. its a beautiful thing.
