i'd probably say "It's a modified version of OSX running on a non-mac platform" or something like that.

I got a lot of question like this: What is this Windows? or: How did you make your Vista look like that? :) Here in Bulgaria most of the people doesn't even heard of OSX, for them OS means Windows :angel:

Many times, I have said no it is not a Mac it is a PC running a Mac OSX.

"Is it possible?"

Well, you have seen it.

:blink:

"How do you do that?"

Well it is a little bit of tricky, and it is by the way a hobby.

I say you know I got this message online asking if I wanted to update drivers and optimize my computer and I clicked yes. And this is what it looks like now, it´s really not the same at all as before but I like a lot.

well finally, the leopard found it's home in tropical where the sun shining and warmer, sometimes hot. Now he is a permanent resident.

(you know the CPU temperature sometimes hot, unusual.)

But of course i would not say this to an angry guy, instead i would say, i'm running Remote Desktop Viewer to my Mac at home and this is confidential, may i ?

I had this insurance guy come over to my place. In a bid to impress his assistant (a dumb but drop dead gorgeous girl in early 20s) he said... "Oh, don't bother, I have seen all these tricks" And then he turned towards me and asked, "So, how big is this theme after all, would you mind copying the setup to my thumb drive?" ... LOL
