    I just noticed that the Mac Pros don't come with Front Row. Is there any way of getting this installed on the mac pro, or not? I don't really need it, but would like the feature as it is on all other Macs.

    It would seem that the only legal way is to wait for Leopard.

    Even if there is another way it is not to be discussed on MR.

    The Mac Pro doesn't have the IR port for the remote.

    Would you feel the same if, for example, the preloaded iWork trial software could be turned into a version that doesn't expire after 30 days?

    Apple has not enabled or licensed Front Row for use with the Mac Pro in Tiger.

    MR's policy on topics that should be off limits is quite clear. Andrew Escobar can probably tell you how much Apple wants Front Row on non-IR equipped machines.

    I've had to remove every link to his enabler on MR because it violates the EULA for the software.

    However, I would think that, if Apple puts the software on Mac Pro machines, it would let you use it easily.
