OSx86 on a PC - has anybody tried yet?

  1. To be honest, I've never even SEEN OSX, let alone tried it myself (largely due to not having a Mac.) I read here at TS that someone somewhere out there on the web had done it and released a means of getting around Apples special little chip, and I'd really like to be able to use OSX (there are a few bits and pieces that I've wanted only available on a Mac) As such, I'm wondering if anybody here has tried it, how easy it was, and how effective the end result.

    Not that I want to install OSX long, personally speaking, But I wouldn't mind having a bit of a play with it to see what all the fuss is about for a little while.

    Mac are using Intel soon. If you don't find anything now try again in a few months.

    yes there's a bootleg (read: illegal) copy out there. Happy you're interested,
    I'll not encourage your efforts other than to say there are those that believe
    Linux will be the big winner as this progresses.
