Hello Everyone,

I want to know if any one successfully installed and used xcode on a netbook. I used it before on a virtualized OS x for a couple of days.

Is it usable? not just for testing but for actual development?

The downsides are the same as with anything else running on a netbook; tiny display, slow CPU, not enough RAM.
If it's compatible and OS X runs well on it, xcode itself will run well on it.
It's up to you to decide if you can work on your projects in a cramped space like that.

Make sure you select a netbook with full QE/CI support, and you're good to go. Have in mind the issues raised by Gringo Vermelho, though.

Atom processors should have a different name that matches properly its performance: maybe Coal, or Vapor, or even AnimalTraction CPUs. Well...
