    I was looking at the mac mini with snow leopard server. I would use it for my work, but I have a few apps on the current server that only run on windows. Is there a way that I can run those apps on the mini server? I know I have a couple of programs that use

    You could upgrade the mini to 8GB RAM (you could use 3rd party memory to do this) then use a virtual machine via VMWare Fusion or Parallels to run your programs that use

    Would I have to install the windows OS onto the server or does VM have the ability to run the windows apps?

    You'd need an OS for the VM. You could look at Crossover to see if that would work. No OS required.
