    See if you can spot what's so horribly wrong with this... ;)

    Other than the fact that you only bet $10 I can't see anything.

    I spent two minutes reading the whole darned thing...that's what's horribly wrong.

    I guess I'll give it away. ;)

    My friend said that he could find a MacBook Pro that has a AMD processor.

    After what I posted he changed what he said to finding a computer that can run Windows AND Os X and is not a mac machine.

    Does such a machine exist?

    How come after every message it tells you the time?
    Wicked annoying.
    And you should have bet like $2000

    I find it weird that you can't write complete sentences in IM. Shocking! :eek:

    The time thing isn't too annoying.

    Not too bad.

    Oh, btw. I use Adium.

    1) you didn't know what AMD was.
    2) you spelled Mac "MAC"
    3) "code works differently" for different processors? I don't think so.

    Yeah, didn't a guy named maxxuss or whatever put a couple versions of OS X onto a PC?

    If you have two partitions, and a boot loader (XOM perhaps?) then I don't see why you couldn't put XP and OS X on a PC.

    I'm not a Intel genius, but didn't developers did/are changing (sometimes small changes) their code to be native on the new machines?

    Does that qualify as working differently?

    That's fairly funny, but it confused everyone and me b/c the way the conversation is layed out. Quite frankly, I still don't totally get it. It might have been more effective to just explain the scenario, or to get a more organized log. :)

    Yeah. The thing is it doesn't run very well and it's ILLEGAL mainly, so it can't become widespread knowledge of how to do that. It will never be a very widespread thing until the day when Apple licenses their OS for PCs, which, of course, I would never let happen over my dead body. :cool: ;)

    It really does. Different processors can't understand different coding for different processors. That's why we have to deal with Rosetta. :cool:

    Yes, I have one right next to me. It's a P4 2.9Ghz (OCd from 2.4 :D) with 512MB RAM, a Radeon 9200 128MB and a (coincidently Apple branded - came from the Cube) 40GB HDD. It does movie converting mostly

    Not when you're talking about the difference between Intel and AMD, which you were. Both execute x86 code.

    If you're changing the discussion to PPC and Intel, then yes, the code is different.
