    in one of my psych class there was a guy with a Dell laptop, he was running OSX :eek:.

    Researching a bit more I found that Osx86 can be installed to run OSX on PCs. Leopard has been successfully installed and has ran fine on PCs too.

    Makes me want to get a Lenovo X61s now cause those are ~2 lbs.

    I have seen it in the past as well. However topics like this often don't last long, they get wastelanded in a hurry.

    It requires some hacking of the OS.

    It is also illegal. You should report that to apple! No apple fan steals from apple! It is just wrong.

    Haven't every seen on in person...and I don't really want to.


    OS X is so great because of the hardware is on...atleast thats part of the reason.


    I'd hate to see OS X if Apple had to support so many other 3rd party things

    Not illegal, just against the EULA. Apple would have to sue the person for breaching the agreement.

    You're sure it wasn't something like flyakiteosx? There's one good way I like to test this: hold down cmd+opt+ctrl+8. Ask to look at it for a sec and press those equivalents on his Dell, then hand it back to him and tell him it broke because it was illegal or something like that, if you want, that is :D

    A friend installed it on his Sempron-based tower and I'm sorry to say the the UI performance was faster than my MBP :(

    Just curious -- what's the difference b/w illegal and against the EULA? And did you mean "sue" the person?

    There is no law saying I cannot install Mac OS X on non Apple Hardware. The police cannot arrest me and throw me in jail for installing Mac OS X on my Windows Box. If it were illegal then the police could do this to me.

    The EULA is an agreement between me an Apple outlining what I can and cannot do with the OS (such as publicizing the work as my own). If I go against this it is up to Apple to take me to court and seek compensations.

    And yes I did mean "sue the person."
