Guys dont you think thay we should be a little bit less exposed? Just search hackintosh in google and bam insanelymac is one of the first hits, along with wikipedia, which also explains about hackintosh a little bit and link to insanelymac.too.. Do we really need that kind of exposure ( to Apple which has a knowledge of where they can screw our Hackintosh ability a few clicks away and will definitely target our weaknesses) to the world? What do you think?
Has anyone read the Wikipedia article these days? It's hideously outdated, lacking lots of information and even, in a certain extent, has wrong information in it. Some examples: Due to the problems sourced during the Lion era,[clarification needed] other ways of installing and required patches were never made public, which leaves the scene in an unknown state towards Mountain Lion. What does it mean? Gossip in the Wikipedia article? Because if there are no reliable sources listed, or no desire to further develop the subject, why post this kind of vague statement? The way it's posted, it makes all the scene, including the many many developers committed to innovating projects like Clover, the opcode emulator and the Chameleon modules, look like a bunch of sissy moronic kids. C'mon! And there's the wrong information: the scene definetely isn't "in an unknown state towards" Mountain Lion (be it what it means). It's precisely the opposite: The tools and methods for hackintoshing were never that powerful and mature, thanks to that many developers committed to it. In fact, hackintosh, since Mountain Lion, is more and more approaching the state of "just working". The support is broad, even for usually problematic hardware. Which takes us to another example: After a while Dmitrik also known as Bronzovka had luck with creating a kernel which supported AMD systems; its development is still ongoing. Took as is, the above statement leads to the idea there isn't a really stable Lion kernel for AMD machines (and the article doesn't make a mention to all the recent development of a kernel not only for AMD machines, but legacy Intel rigs as well). The plain fact is that, since the first R:A:W:X86 AMD kernel for 10.7.4, at least newer AMD CPUs have full support. Bronzovka, Shane and R:A:W:86 have had various degree of success enabling full support for older AMD CPUs. Of course, development is still ongoing, as with any thing hackintosh-related, but we've been highly successful with it. The omission of the latest AMD kernel development, if deliberate, is absolutely unfair! Thanks to the drive brought by this development, now we have the opcode emulator, a wonderful tool made by Sinetek, that enables all the missing CPU instructions, enabling full OSX support for a large plethora of hardware. Since the opcode emulator is coded in plain C, it's cross-platform par excellence, and i can reasonably think about it being used on Linux, BSD and even Windows (imagine someone who wants to run latest games on older hardware: enter the opcode emulator). Why worry about the Wikipedia article?, some would think or say. Well, if we have a free internet outdoor with quite outstanding visibility, it better advertise it right. It's the same with Wikipedia, one of the most accessed sites on the world wide web. I don't know how the article edition is really done, but we better make sure people familiar with the scene (like Insanelymac staff) is heard.
