No you don't. All you need to do is install codecs for them, which is really no different than Windows.

Not ones that have decent computer experience. There's just as many other OS users who go crosseyed when you mention codecs

I'd rather have Apple concentrate on a few other things ahead of revamping AppleTV though, like MobileMe (Still needs a bit more work on it, and I swear to God I'll have a stroke if they make it free as rumors suggest, shortly after I paid for the damn thing). I used to like the pricing of the Mini and was considering one of the wife, but by the time you add a monitor to that puppy you're already in iMac territory (price wise) provided the upcoming refresh of them doesn't significantly change the prices. Definitely like the new footprint of the thing though, and they did a nice job of keeping their OSX Server version relatively affordable for home users looking for a relatively small setup.
