So you want to run OSX on the Intel Based PC on your Desk?

That’s right my geek friends have a spare computer laying around and I think you could have yourself a weekend of fun loading Apple OSX (Developers Edition) on your Intel based PC that you have stored in a closet. May be a bit buggy but it sure will be a lot of fun to show it off to the geek next door who just purchased a dual processor G5. [Extreme Tech]

Rub it in a little and install the build on a high end Pentium 4 that you got for $500.00

  1. One main caveat here folks before you get all excited.. read this from the Extreme Tech Article.

    ” The choice of motherboard is crucial for this project: Intel’s D915GAVL. It won’t set the world on fire with its performance, but it’s almost the exact same motherboard Apple used. The board features four on-board SATA ports, dual-channel memory slots, x16, x4, and x1 PCI Express slots, and the GMA900 video chipset

  2. I seems sacrilegious to have such a beautiful, fast, powerful, virus-free, spyware-free, and solid operating system like OSX on an ugly old piece of crap like my beige PC box I have in the closet. But I figure if I run a real long cable or two, I maybe able to keep that loud, ugly box in the closet and just appreciate the beauty and functiuonality of OSX.
    Seriously, I hope everyone has the chance to run OSX on their PC.. its what computing was meant to be.
