    If you've not heard of Disco, then head over to http://discoapp.com/ , it's basically a disc burning app designed by the guys who made AppZapper (and if you've not heard of AppZapper, where have you been!?).

    I just received my beta, and am playing about with it now... so far, very impressed :D anyone else beta testing ?

    It is such a fun app to use, and I have no idea why. I keep trying to find CDs to burn. Its insane.

    Anyways, you got anything that will run Smoke or is it just not ready yet? It says my gfx card is underage as well.

    It's quite possibly the best name ever for an app.

    The Smoke will work on my iBook, however, I'm yet to try it :)

    Explanation:
    So we can thank Intel for the lack of fun on our Minis and MacBooks. You can read the full background on the smoke here: http://discoapp.com/blog/?p=23

    LARGE hairy balls. Thankfully the developers are willing to work on it though (I think the volume of MacBook users would mean they'd get more ear-ache for not doing it :D)

    Used this the other day to make an ISO for X. The Smoke option was available, but nothing happened when I made the image. Does it only smoke when burning a disc?

    Would make sense... can't make smoke without burning something first :)

    Just got round to installing this on my iBook, disappointed at the lack of smoke even though dedicated graphics are present... will have to wait for the intel workaround/bodge to see it in the flesh :D
