i stumbled upon this on google.


well if you would like to run mac on your pc, just wait until 2007, dell made a deal with apple to increase their software sales so pc's will beable to legally run mac os x. that means that people illigelly run mac, so you can run mac on your pc, just not legally because of the intel switch. i never used linux but i heard its really great. you can skin your windows to look like mac, its hard to make it act and feel like one. i gave up on doing that, and flyakite prevents a lot of programs from working with changing file names. something you would want to search that might interest you is "osx86", remember you didn't hear it from me.

Dreamlinux

Go to www.dreamlinux.com.br and grab Dreamlinux. It's an installable Live CD based on Morphix/Debian.It has some Mac OS X-like features, like a dock that zooms, Mac-like Window decorations, a lot of screensavers, some awesome software(gtkpod, xmms, blender, Audacity, GIMP, iceweasel, panel xmms remote etc.).However, don't use it as an absolute replacement, because it has strange bugs and problems. I haven't found out how to put stuff into the dock[you can modify the setting with a term, use engage --help], gtkpod doesn't work from the dock, you need to use the executable in /usr/bin, Archive manager doesn't work, and mplayer crashes often. It needs work, but its concept is awesome, and is worth a look.

You mean Microsoft slut, right? Whores get paid. Sorry, couldn't resist.

Now that it's 2007, I have to say, the new MacBooks are awesome. I'm actually considering getting one (but not until OS X "Leopard" is released). Once I get my mitts on a MacBook running Leopard, it's going to be dual booted.

No one mentioned the core of Mac OS has always been BSD UNIX, a free UNIX distribution with a slightly different license than Linux. The reason developers like Linux is people can't copy your code, integrate it into their own program, and then make money with it. The BSD license allows anyone to pick up a development tree and develop the existing sources into whatever they want, and then sell it. The problem with using BSD is Mac OS uses proprietary programs to work with .dmg installation files. So even if you install the core OS, unless you buy a Mac you can't install any Mac software or drivers. Technically the sources for a Mac OS could be used with UNIX or Linux, but they are packaged in a container such that they are unusable. If you go to the developer section of apple.com you will find most of the operating system that they give away for free, minus proprietary tools.
