    A freind of mine has run Tiger on his Dell Laptop it is not hard to do if you have a decent knowledge of linux. WHich i dont.....I think he did it by getting darwin linux and installing it through that, i am not sure exactly how but you can find more info if you google it.....

    The only problem is that as the video shows it runs EXTREMELY slow even on a fast PC, it works far worse than my 6 year old powermac, so its not worth doing by any means but it does look pretty cool!!!

    ShadOW :D

    i call fake

    I dont know about this. My call: Fake

    Full screen VNC connection maybe? Graphics seem choppy. Not 'slow hardware' choppy, but 'this is being encoded and sent over a network ala VNC' choppy.

    What do you guys think?

    Hahahaha I've tricked so many people doing that. That's just PearPC in full screen mode. :p I can tell because my genie effect worked the same exact way; jumpy like that. Same with Safari scrolling speeds. Nice try, but you can't fool itasor.

    Actually, I am willing to bet that the person did the same thing CherryOS, the fake Mac OS Emulator did - take the PPC code and change numbers so it acts faster. Also, the video was sped up a little (its obvious after watching it more than once...)

    No. It's VNC. PearPC wouldn't have that kind of artifacting when redrawing the screen. Refer to this thread

    I used PearPC for 2 weeks and it exactly like that, although it could be VNC too. What does it matter? We know it's fake. No "intel" version of OS X would run jumpy like that.
