Yeah man just buy a Mac if you actually want OS X like. (even though i myself prefer windows to mac)

So anyway, man learn how to partition your hard drive and set it up as a windows + mac dual boot?

If you think your hacker enough to do that.



you don't have to be a hacker to do that, mac comes with a program called Boot Camp that does it for you. its as easy as clicking "ok" a few times.

Any OS will work given the correct hardware and any computer that runs vista can do it! Good idea by the way, one of my friends did the same and it worked grand.

Ubuntu is awesome. I'm running Jaunty Jackalope on my laptop and it works great. Linux is great and everything is free.

I know that myself, but i used the term jokingly as the OP has posted a thread boasting about this, and also said he is waiting on an "epic hack"

My use of "hacker" was just a joke.

good luck, Hackintosh is not an easy task to undertake.

Why would you want to devolve a PC into a Mac?

because i'm bored.

i still get to keep windows, by the way.

well, that just seems unnecessary.

If anything, if you were truly "hax0rz" enough you should be able to download and build Linux.

I've said this many times and I'll keep saying it: DON'T DO IT!!

The modified distros of OSX are NOT WORTH INSTALLING!!! They barely function, are for demo purposes, and are complete pains to set up even if you have all the luck in the world!!! If you're bored, go mess around with Linux...leave OSX on the Mac's.

I speak from personal experience and also from reading lots of other experiences.

probably because mac is superior to a lot of people?

It is absolutely not free. It costs your time, patience, comfort, and bowel stability.

Apart from the fact that Mac OS has fewer viruses targeted toward it, Macs are in NO WAY superior to PC's, and certainly not Linux.


Not even close.

i believe i said "TO A LOT OF PEOPLE" which is true. why do you think people buy macs over PCs? because they think they're better.

Okay, sorry.

i know you admitted that the thread was poorly named by including 'hac'

but for the love if god what was the point of posting this ??!?!?!?!?

oh and i like your claim to be cool.. ie 'hax0rz' lol *sigh*

oh and no hax0rz would build a linux OS from the ground up... the term itself means people who find weaknesses in other peoples programs.... for good or for bad purposes (black/white hat)

It works fine on a PC.

What do you base this on?


I've personally done the whole thing on a few different computers. Pretty much none of them were fully operational because of extremely limited hardware compatibility. The distros themselves state that they are intended for demonstration, with many aspects of the OS disabled or not available.

i like the way everything is set up on a mac better, and macs just look cooler lol. But I don't think it's worth possibly making your computer slower and f*cking other stuff up to get that setup.

To everyone starting Mac v PC flamewars in a thread made by a Pit mod,

Good luck, TS, though I doubt it works well in the end.

That says nothing about OSX on PC. It's another retarded "debate".

When you buy a Mac the OS is covered in the price point. They make all the money on the hardware allowing for a activation free OS, because they wont loose money. Not to mention they make even more cash on all the Software you buy after that. It's a money roll. Very clever from a business stand point.
Exactly. The Macintosh hardware needs to be present to install the OS, so the OS is effectively protected by the world's biggest hardware dongle. (Until it got cracked to run on clone hardware.)


Did you even read through it?
