yes i where looking before for this company because i thought i would 
need a fanless computer ... but now i think i just need a normal quiet 
computer ...

but thanks for the suggestions

on the intel macs i just run a normal linux.
but i did not test it so much so i dont know anything if everything is 

i have an old ibook where it is impossible to use a firewire soundcard

anybody try to compile ffado on a ppc?
