Out of respect for the list, I'm resisting a very strong urge to keep 
the flame alive... ;-)

I like 'em too.

Could be a better bedroom machine than the DHD. I've been looking at 
maybe a 15" LCD to go with my diskless EPIA as an option, but these 
would be cooler. I've also been thinking about replacing my aging dual 
800 G4 for a while...

Typical (pre-G5 tower) on-board audio with Apple-enhanced stereo 
mini-plug output, for either their "Pro" speakers or whathaveyou, or so 
it would appear. I don't see any spdif outs on the back of it, though 
M-Audio has some USB and FireWire audio devices w/spdif outputs...

You could also try running Linux on it, though you'd still have both the 
complexity of being PowerPC and 64-bit on these things, so I have a 
feeling it might be a bit of effort to make it work. Could be worth it
