Hard to say. I'm running on Kalyway and a friend is dual-booting with Leo4All and they both seem to be working great.

Well, if it comes down to it, I'll probably stick with Kalyway in future just because I know this compy gets along so well with it.

iATOKOS 10.5.1, because it's the only one that runs on my Dell Inspiron 1520.

Always gets stuck on IOAPIC on the other distros. I hope iATKOS 10.5.2/3 is released soon

For my AMD machine, Zephyroth 10.5.2 rev 1. I know how to get it running fine. 10.5.2 rev 2 does not work for me.

For my Intel machine that should be here Friday or Saturday, I am going to try Kalyway. If that doesn't work well, then I will try iATKOS. Of course I will demo JaS a try once released.

Leo4All has been much better to my AMD machine than Zephyroth...for some reason, the Zephyroth DVDs I burned would always kernel panic right after installing. But Leo4All installed perfectly, has been quite stable for me, and also allowed me to be lazy because it had the nForce kext I needed already integrated into the install. :whistle:

Also, even though I'm getting a Macbook Pro in a month or two, I still want to play around with OSx86, mainly because I'm a bit of an operating systems junkie, and I plan to build an Intel machine, and I won't have to download a new DVD. <_<

None of the Above, I prefer to install with a real Mac and put patches after.

There are no options for BrazilMAC method or Prawkers method.

Incredible that you cant even spell right the names of the "distributions". -_-

I'm a JaS man myself.

I don't have a PC as of right now though. I did have a AMD and Zephyroth he made solid releases.

I wish Tubgirl was still around though, than again when I used that my internet didn't work until I installed the IONetworking.kext

Zephyroth 10.5.1 Rev.2 Internal Beta -> forever! Updated to 10.5.2 by eddie's updater :-)

This system and zeph's release play very well together, I never experienced a crash, freeze or error! Rock solid. :-D

I vote for Zephyroth 10.5.2 Rev.2. It is the only one that worked for my hardware and fromthe installation everything worked perfect.

Leo4All didn't boot to the installer so I didn't test it any more.
