  2. NEW BUILD - 9A283

    Interesting build! Can't wait to try it!
  3. I'm looking forward to these improvements, Mash. I think the ideas for insanely mac are good and the name is a great one too. Well done and thanks for the continued work on this great site.

  5. iMac G5 vs. iMac Core Duo

    Thanks for the link, that's a great article (16 pages!)
  6. Descent 2! x86! Free!

    I absolutely LOVE the descent series - they rocked back in the day and (after Commander Keen) were some of my favorite PC games as I was introduced to it growing up. Anyway, it's open source now and the Mac version now works with the new Intel processors! I haven't tested it yet (although I plan to). Anyone care to test? http://www.descent2.de/introframes.html
  7. OSx86 10.4.4 Leaked

    EDIT: Removed content violating DMCA
  8. I agree. We are getting more "typical" Mac users all the time (like myself), so I know that I would like to have more of the same... except a little different. I trust you when you say this, which is why I think it's a great idea! I really see this as a win/win situation.
  9. Preliminaries I think that we have needed a guide like this for some time, so here's the place to get started if you want to install OS X on your PC. Most of these resources are on this site, so be sure to search!!! Also, always remember to include these things in any of your posts here (copied from the FAQ): 1. Hardware Specs: Motherboard: intel, amb, etc. Video: nV, ATI, etc. Data storage: SATA, PATA, ATA, USB, etc. 2. Detailed Error Messages Hit F8 at boot and type -v to boot in verbose mode in order to identify the problem if you’re having problems booting. Otherwise, just be as detailed as possible. Finally, use the wiki. This site has a great one and it will save you a lot of questions. Everything you need to get started Ok, with those things out of the way, here is a list of questions and answers for installing OS X. Where do I download it? You shouldn't. It's highly illegal and it's theft - you're stealing from Apple. If you already have a copy of the installation disc and just need a backup, it's probably less illegal, but since with bittorrent you're always seeding, you're not off the hook. However, for those interested, a simple google search can tell you where these files are located. Most of the time they end up on the usual suspects such as the Pirate Bay and Demonoid. Don't place links in this forum, though - I happen to like this place and want it to stay around. Where are the guides for installing everything? Check the wiki. This Installation Guides page should have all you’d ever need. What hardware works? Visit the wiki for huge lists of hardware for every version of OS X - the HCLs tell what works and what doesn't work. Always check the lists before you ask about hardware! I've got it installed. Now what? Visit the wiki (are you seeing a pattern here?) for tricks to speed up your installation and tweak various settings. Then come back here to the forum to help those who need it (and maybe right a guide like this one!). Final notes... If you have specific questions about these things, start a new thread elsewhere only after you search. Let's keep this thread clean for discussion about this guide. I will update this list as it requires it, so let me know below when there are things I need to add.
  10. This site does a great job covering OSx86 news and sometimes I wish you covered more general Mac news. I think you could do it better than most sites. Have you ever thought about starting up a sister site to talk about regular Mac stuff? I know there are a lot of people (like me) who would help post news stories.
  11. http://www.businessweek.com/technology/con...0126_148049.htm "After getting trounced for four years in the digital music business by Apple Computer (AAPL ), Microsoft (MSFT ) finally seems poised to do something about it. BusinessWeek has learned that the software giant is working on plans to develop its own portable digital media device to rival the iPod, rather than just providing technology to partners. Microsoft hasn't decided if it will go ahead. But sources inside the company and at its partners say Microsoft has put together a team that's considering the business end of such an initiative."
  12. Our New Forum Structure

    Great job, Mash, as usual. I really like the new structure and I think the "Mac" forum is a great addition that's been a long time coming. One question - how is the new Reviews forum different from the Genius Bar?
  13. Not much on 10.4.4 from anyone? WHY?

    So the important people, like Maxxuss, have the DVD? Is that what you're saying DeathChill?
  14. Adium X Official Universal Binary

    That's great news, thanks for the info everyone. Adium is the best IM client out there, IMO.
  15. Mashugly, I think that sounds like an good order for the forum. And for the record, I think your vision for this site is right on the mark. Keep up the great job.
