    I am fed up with microsoft and decided to give apple a try. I currently have a PC with an Athlon processor. My case and power supply are great. I was going to order a new motherboard, processor, ram and graphics card from newegg and install them in the existing case. Then install Leopard OS cause I can dual boot with that. My question is will my Linksys wireless router work with the Leopard OS and I also have a bluetooth microsoft keyboard and mouse that I really like. Will that work also? Thanks for the help and advice!!!

    Your linksys router should work fine as long as you have a wireless card installed. Your best bet would to be to buy an airport card if you don't have a wireless card for your box yet.

    Installing Leopard on your PC is against the EULA, I recommend Linux.

    No OS X on PC hardware. And another thing, WHY DO ALL OF THESE PEOPLE SPELL Mac WITH ALL CAPS?! Where do you get this idea?! It's enough to drive us all insane!

    *slap*

    Sorry, it's just... no Mac Pros in so long...

    This statement is kinda vague and a bit misleading. The question asked was whether his/her router and peripherals would work with Leopard (and they will). I think what you mean to say is that it's not actually legal to install Leopard on non-Apple hardware.

    However, if the question is merely "will it work?"
    ... then the answer is yes.
