In Topic: Petition: Release Mac OS X for PC

...They make their money with hardware, not software.

IMO Apple sell devices to access their services which in turn do a BIG part of the income. You can't even download new OS X version without having Apple ID (when Mavericks is FREE OF CHARGE).


The above is true for the mobile devices at least.

Unfortunately Macs are more expensive to repair and some models are quite difficult to repair at all.


How long a PC would serve, greatly depend on the usage scenario (i.e. how the dive is used and cared after).

i5 with lots of memory should be fine right?

Definitely so!

In Topic: Graphics only work in safe boot

Would it be better to remove the intel gma Kexts that I have installed?

Then installing OS X from a distro disk (like the one you use), it is recommended to install only bare minimum of drivers (kexts; that is no VGA or Sound or LAN drivers). The idea is to get the system booting and then troubleshoot the rest.

If it's really occasional video editing (not something you do for living), then yes i5 should be enough. As for graphics, it depends on the applications used. Some require powerful GPU, some are more CPU oriented.
