I am a software engineer specializing mostly in Microsoft and web technologies.  I have been tinkering with operating systems for 16 or so years?  I have gone from the C64, to the first XTs, and pretty much everything in between (ironically skipping everything Apple).  I am big into the Android scene, and an XDA member (I don't go by the same SN).


I came to these forums in search of an active community, as last weekend I decided to engulf myself in creating a hybrid OS PC comprised of OSX / Windows 8.  I started in another forum, and while there were a lot of questions, there were no answers!  I have spent upwards of 30-40+ hours in the dregs getting my system to work, by trial and error, and doing the most insane things in desperation (mostly paid off).  As you can imagine, even though I am highly skilled in technology, I'm a nub to everything Mac, including this.


My system we are working with is a P6T Deluxe / I7 920 with 12GB RAM, 2 500GB HDs, and an NVidia 610.  I figured when Steam Streaming came out, I'd use it mostly for that, but now I find myself back on my Shield (which is FAR nicer on the electric bill) on the rare occasions I have time to kill, so I want to do something fun with this aging behemoth before it became cannon fodder (I may get a 5xxx XEON CPU to squeeze another 3-5 years out of it).  I'll give the full rundown on how this all went down on my next post (which will be a question).  I will tell you upfront that the "Mac" has full graphics acceleration, sound, hdmi sound, USB, and it works great!  There's just one thing missing...



I'm a Coloradoan.  I like to ski.  I like long walks on the beach and the wind through my hair.... OK, just kidding (although I do ski).  


I got a 'D' on my quiz - funny, huh?


I have seen the comment about commercial sites.  Before I get the axe on the first day, is "N!r3$h" off the table, or is his stuff all good?
