    OS X Runs Better on a PC

    agree with post above, custom PC are faster and cheaper than original mac (ofcourse except for super noobs).
  3. I use iATKOS 10.6.3, then updated to 10.6.4 through Apple Software Update, all hardware working, I write this just in case somebody need some working kext, or have hardware specification similar to me. My Hardware: Gigabyte G31M-S2C - onboard intel ICH7 chipset - onboard soundcard Intel HDA (Realtek) ALC662 [Dev 0x0622 Ven 0x10EC] - onboard LAN Realtek 8169D [Dev 0x8136 Ven 0x10EC] PCI D-Link DGE-530T [Dev 0x4B01 Ven 0x1186] Intel Core2 Quad 2.33 GHz Memory DDR2 4GB (2x2GB) ATi Radeon HD4890 QE+CI [Dev 0x8460 Ven 0x1002] Samsung 23" HD Monitor native res (1920x1080) SATA WDC 1TB + Seagate ST3160 160GB (using chameleon RC4 bootloader) PS/2 Keyboard + USB Mouse 8 ports USB working used kext attached (in 8MB zip file): AppleACIPS2Nub.kext AppleIntelPIIXATA2.kext Disabler.kext ElliotForceLegacyRTC.kext EvOReboot.kext fakesmc.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext skge.kext ALC662.kext AppleHDA.kext ATI4800Controller.kext ATIFramebuffer.kext ATISupport.kext EVOEnabler.kext ATIRadeonX2000.kext ATIRadeonX2000GA.plugin ATIRadeonX2000GLDriver.bundle ATIRadeonX2000VADriver.bundle workingKEXT_10.6.4.zip
  4. being purist of apple hardware is like you just following apple move on hardwares, the closed platform..., means lack of freedom to choose which hardware you want to install on your PC, you can't choose to install high-end GPU like GTX295 or 4890X2, high end CPU like phenom X4 or Core i7, huge ram like 8GB DDR3, fancy liquid cooling, huge LCD monitor up to 32", high performance SATA raid or SSD drives, high end sound card for gaming X-Fi or Asus Sonic... if you don't want to use those fancy hardware, so just follow mainstream apple hardware which is always slower and more expensive than any independent PC vendor. being apple follower will give u nice designed apple hardware and cute OS, but just it.. u can't install any application or high end games, because its all limited to hardware choices. so i see the mac fan or apple purist is just a guy accept anything in his life and his life is just simple on using its PC for everyday life not a hardcore or an expert in computer.. not cool.. so for me i better use upgradeable or independent PC, being able to use OSX is just a nice bonus, if only apple would sell its osx for open platform PC it would be nice, but they are selling its hardware not the software

  7. Apple should understand this while they are moving to intel, it means they are moving to PC world, what's the difference between Mac and local PC now? there's nothing except Mac is more expensive (that's why I don't like Mac fans) and it has apple logo on it, and even worse its performance wise bad and very slow to evolve, ok its beautiful... but ugly inside. if they don't want to change their EULA of OS X, just go back to their crappy hardware and processor. I love OS X but I hate Mac, i would buy OS X only if I could upgrade my hardware freely, upgrade it anytime with anything i want with reasonable price. after moving to intel mac users incresing from 2.5% to 4.3% in three years, eating Linux desktop share (1% today ). I predict after OS X using open hardware it could be 15% or even better eating a lot of windows market share, it would give more competition on O/S world, and customer will have a lot of benefit from that (just forget about linux, their O/Ses are {censored})

    AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    we are using same laptop F3JA, i think the headphones is working but the volume levels is too low, you can edit this file using your working AppleHDA.kext : AppleHDA.kext\Contents\Resources\DefaultAudioLevels.plist it contains like this : <key>2</key> <array> <dict> <key>Internal Speaker</key> <real>-18.0</real> </dict> </array> then look these codes in the file AppleHDA.kext\Contents\PlugIns\AppleHDAController.kext\Contents\Info.plist ... </data> <key>FuncGroup</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>LayoutID</key> <integer>12</integer> </dict> its writen LayoutID value is 12, then u open AppleHDA.kext\Contents\Resources\layout12.xml on this file there will be info about PathMapID, for example : <array>.... <string>Headphone</string> <string>LineOut</string> <string>IntSpeaker</string> <string>SPDIFOut</string> </array> <key>PathMapID</key> <integer>9</integer> <key>SPDIFIn</key> <dict/> <key>SPDIFOut</key> .... it point to AppleHDA.kext\Contents\Resources\pathmap9.xml this file will contain sound card setting including volume boost..., like this : <array> <!-- Headphone Output Path --> <dict> <key>Boost</key> <integer>3</integer> <key>NodeID</key> <integer>24</integer> </dict> <dict> if its not working maybe u should try to change to another layout or another PathMap... dont forget to report me when u got loud headphone volumes...
  10. its based on http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=77629 but I can't get it to work on my laptop, then I edit file ALCinject.kext/Contents/Info.plist in this archive then add some entries and install .kext as usual (im using Kext helper b7), what i did is : look for entry <key>IONameMatch</key> there will be an entry <array> after that, then I added <string>pci10ec,665</string>, it will work... my F3JA spec is : distro KALYWAY 10.5.1 intel SSE2/SSE3 - GUID partition Triple Boot OSX,XP,Fedora8 1.67Ghz Intel Core 2 duo 1GB RAM Disk SATA 80GB LCD 15.4" (worked at native res. 1280x800x32@60) Ethernet Realtek 8168 (worked) ALC665 Realtek HDAudio (worked, audio output stereo + input (mic)) ATi Mobility Radeon X1600 (worked, CI/QE) Mat{censored}a DVD-RAM UJ-850S (worked, including burning) Firewire (worked) USB 2.0 (worked) Bluetooth (worked) Keyboard/Touchpad/Mouse (worked) Modem (who care!?)

    OS X Annoyances

    well i like the visual/art of OSX, they're all beautiful, but then I realize that OSX user interface is bad by design, in perspective of efficiency and ease of use. first all the problem begin with dock, i think it is stupid feature... well yes it make OSX beautiful, but if you have a lot of applications installed the dock will be full, and it getting smaller, because of menu bar is used for main menu (and I think this is as annoyance too) then minimized windows is placed on dock which bring confusion which one is icon to start app and to restore app, further more the minimized icon doesn't have context menu to restore, minimize or maximize associated window so it is less useful compared to windows where windows users could managing their windows by only using taskbar, but in OSX you need to switch all over windows and find the minimize icon. then because of dock is big, and located in bottom centered desktop (yes its by default), then there will be no maximize window icon principally, the max window size you can get is as large as desktop excluding the dock and menubar area, this will make users less productive and wasting screen pixels. because of main app. menu is mainly using dock icons (to launch most frequently apps) then theres no application menu which contain all applications installed, the apple menu is don't have its purpose, its mainly used only to shutdown/logout/restart osx so why its there? for historical reason? for give the functionality of mainbar (or for historical reason) apple use its as main menu for each window/app. these are very annoying and stupid by the view of user interface design, the reason is the contents of menubar will be not consistence, further more users have to switch window to see what menu the window contain. and one more the user need to know which window is currently active to know that which app the menu owned by, well yes you can read the first menu text but what happen when multiple window with same name is running? I said before that minimized window located on dock, but its getting worse when running application and application menu is located on same dock too, osx only use tiny little invisible black triangle on the bottom icons of running app which lead to more confusing interface. ok thats enough all the problem caused by the so innovative beauty state of the art docks... then we see there's no "cut" context menu we need to copy, paste on destination, and back again to delete those (does it hard to put "cut" menu?), then the problem getting worse... there's no "rename" menu too... its so silly then the fcking ugly there is no frame for window, ok thats no problem about no-frame but the problem is you can't resize window easily, why they just dont give the access to all side of window even there's no frame or resizer icon? then we go to file management function, osx provide it with finder window, look there's no thumbnail!!? no location edit bar / URI?? i need to take multiple click on icons and search for the icons to take me to destination i want, you can imagine its as pain as when the internet browser doesn't have URL edit bar its, it mean useless! ok there's a lot of osx user interface flaws i can mentions... but it will make another page to write. and one that make me laughing is when i see and always see the video presentation of osx, they emphasized and highlight the feature on application level, not operating system level, look they demonstrate how iChat work, how the animation of timemachine, the safari, dashboard... well the point is, its just another ordinary application which every OSes could do when there is installed app. on it... its all {censored} and doesn't make me impressed. oh yeah another thing... apple make OSX and only give permission to run it on apple hardware (that's the ugly unflexible and doesn't cheap PC) ?? can you imagine if microsoft only make window to run on microsoft PC? apple should consider osx to run on open platform that's violation of human right!
