MacOSX works like a dream. It's relatively fast and even though the nvidia drivers are not yet accelerated it seems responsive. Pretty much everything works, I haven't tested Firewire, but I know that WiFi, Bluetooth and USB work fine as well as the basic system.

The one drawback is heat and noise. Running any OS the 8500 is a noisy fan heater... but particularly since here isn't (yet) support for SpeedStep this means the CPU is running full tilt most of the time and consequently the fans are too... (mind you, it tended to do this in Windows XP too so no big loss there) - not recommended for the phonophobes amongst us :) .
