An Intel iMac running Mac OS X Jaguar

It took a while to install and setup, but I finally figured out how to get PearPC to work properly in Windows 8.

I wanted to try something cool and thought the iMac would look awesome running Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar. Surprisingly it runs quite well, although for whatever reason its locked in G3, rather than G4 support anyway to fix this?

PearPC has defo come along way since that days I tried panther on it, back in 2004 LOL.

Are you using any app that is Jaguar-dependent?

Not really, I just did it for a bit of fun. I have been off from University too long now LOL, so I've just spent most of January tinkering with my Macs xD.

Cool!
To change CPU type you need to edit cpu_pvr in configuration file: http://pearpc.sourceforge.net/config.html

like I said its interesting to try and see it working. Even though I have a G4 tower running it native I was curious to see how it actually run on my Quad Core machine under emulation.
