Longtime OSx86 contributor netkas has posted EFiX in action on his blog. According to netkas, EFiX is hardware which plugs into your USB port.
EFiX is the best solution for installing and using Mac OS X on your PC.
It allows its user to install Mac OS X straight from the original DVD without having to worry about patches,
replacing files and anything like that.
That means you can buy a regular PC, Mac OS X and EFiX and enjoy what the Mac users have always enjoyed:
unmodified Mac OS X on your computer, safe, easy and fast, exactly the way it should be.
The development of EFiX took a lot of time.
During the development phase, we had to deal with various problems, including sabotage.
This process also involved testing, which has been conducted for the last 6 months in production environments.
Industry leading professionals(who work for TV stations, recording studios and many others) rely on EFiX and Mac OS X running on standard PC hardware to get their tasks done.
EFiX is in the final testing phase.
All the testing has went far better than what we expected and the testers have given positive feedback.
We have planned to release it on 23rd of June, 2008. More information will be added soon.
As the June 23rd release approaches, many questions about EFiX remain unanswered:
-Is it an EFI emulator like PC_EFI or Chameleon?
-Is the USB device required every time you boot or just during installation?
-While this device may allow OS 10 to be installed, won't the driver situation be just like that of the OSx86 project?
-How will Apple respond to this?
-Will EFiX's EFI implementation be usable on traditional OSx86 DVDs?
Something of note is the EFiX contact page:
Notice here that the United States, along with many other countries are ignored. Also, netkas who has a sample of the device, stated:
(If you can not find dealers in your region please contact us)
they don't plan to sell it in US.
So, forget about dmcs in this case.
