Is there a version of Mac OS X that can run on a PC? Is there anyone here with experience of it?
Nope, and chances there never will be. At a recent press conference, Steve Jobs (Apple CEO) said that he wanted to make it clear that " Mac OS X will never be allowed to run on a machine besides a Mac" So unless they create bootcamp for a PC dont count on it.
if you want OS X so bad, log onto ebay, buy an inexpensive imac or something like that, then also look for a version of OS X 10.4, and then load it. chances are very good that you could get both for like $100.00
Are there any Mac OSs that can run on a PC?
not that i know of currently. you might be able to do a google search and find one, but i wouldnt reccomend it, b/c if you just find a random piece of software out there, who knows what kind of damage it could to to your computer. just to let you know, that like with Apples Bootcamp, it COMPLETLEY reformats the HD so your original machine could be gone forever. Also taken from the comment that Mr Jobs made, it could possibly be illegal.
do whatever you want but you've been warned
Thanx for the info. Looks like Windows will be with us for a long time........
Here you go buddy: http://osx86project.org/
Please direct any further questions on this topic to them, techspot doesn't want any part of that scene.
Thanx for the link.
wait, what? TS doesn't want any part of that scene??
Well its not exactly legal, so yes, we don't want to discuss this. If you think strongly otherwise take it up with Julio, if he posts here or other wise tells me its ok, then I'll gladly allow discussion and likely participate.
Edit: I also think there are not many (likely none) techspotters that have any serious knowledge in running OSX on a PC, so one would be better off directing questions to those OSX86 guys anyway.
Yes, i thought that it would be illegal taken from the comment that Steve Jobs made at the press conference
Does the above link suggest that you can install Mac OS X straight out of the box without any software emulation at all.
Yes, but this article was published back in November of 2005, in a pc magazine, they tried out what they mentioned here, and dont get me wrong, they reported that it worked. But, they said it wouldnt run Mac Aqua effects, and they graphics were terrible b/c they messed up the GPU drivers when installing OS X, and they said all and all, it took HOURS to even get it up and running w/o crashing every 5 sec. I will say it again.
Go ahead, but you've been warned
and as SNGX1275 said, it IS illegal
The closest youll get to Mac emulation on a PC is OS 8 and below i belive, i think you can even get them straight of apples website, but there so outdated it wouldnt matter.
Have you thought about investing in an Intel Mac? you'd have a better chance with that
why dont you just get a mac that runs windows
Or better yet - an intel mac and dual boot
