Nice. But OSX is bordering on illegal. It's not sanctioned by Apple, and isn't always easy to do, which is why non-techies don't do it.

Here is a multi-platform benchmark:

This is the most popular one, and I usually use it... though it's kind of BS because it only uses tests that UNIX based systems excel on (photo rendering stuff) and has no 3D bench part of it.

Why would go out and buy a copy of OSX when you have OS's like Ubuntu and OpenSUSE at your disposal?

OSX is pretty easy to navigate and figure out even when using for the first time. Like I have said before, I like the OS, but I hate the over priced hardware and the people who brag about Mac.

pretty sure its not leagal, but it should be.

I've been looking into OSX86 for a while. I ended up not doing it in the past because of poor suport for my hardware.

I realy think that the overly restrictive software licenses should be outlawed. Apple think you shaould have to buy overpriced underpowered hardware to run thier software (they don't even deveope the hardware anymore, the just buy it an mark it up like crazy). M$ thinks its Ok to change what how the OS gets validate long after the purchase.

sometimes it seams like the only way to get properly working software is to download the pirate versions.

^Very true. I'm pretty sure if Apple enabled OSX on PC natively many will switch.

Yeah, but it's all about the games man! Many gamers would still be using WinXP even years down the road!

^Good point. But most every day users could switch as I have done. I usually use Fedora for web surfing. Windows for gaming as I am forced to. People who just surf the web,email,etc can easily switch to another platform.
