OSX on my PC, my experience ...

Recommended Posts

Hi !

 

Few days ago i've installed osx on my PC:

 

CPU: AMD Athlon64 2800+

RAM: 256MB

MB.: GA-K8N Pro

Chipset: nForce3

Graphics: Radeon 9200 128MB

HDD: WD Caviar 80GB

Optical drives: Samsung CD-RW, Samsung DVD-ROM

 

System works pretty well, i was expect more errors and hangup's, but it was nice surprise :>

Bad things:

 

1. System work little slowly. Maybe it's becouse i've not much of RAM memory, i don't mean about speed of reading and writing on hdd ( i found how to fix it ). On orginal Mac's people have 768MB :>

2. Strange behaviour of some aplications. It runs, work ok and unexpectly it turn of, without any reason. If someone know why pls let me know...

3. Bigest weakness is graphics :/ ..... on my radeon i can't get nothing more than 2D. I'm affraid to patch bios, cos i don't have maney for another graphics card when this will broke, and i still want use it on windows. So i'll not play in games like Quake. Well, i'll handle this :>

4. And finally ... console .... On many linux OS'es on witch i worked i didn't get friend with it. For more advanced system preferences it is necessary to use console and this is big minus for this system.

 

Good things:

 

1. System is very friendlly. Everything what normal user need to do, he can do this without using console form using system to network settings and installing aplications. So i can tell that system is maximum IDIOTREZISTANT :> .... user have to want to broke something.

2. Installing apps.. GOD it's even to easy ! all what user have to do is drag app from mounted drive image ( or any other archiv ) to any location on his hard disk ... Interactivity and user engagement ( witch is educational ) is allmost unpresent, it cannot be done easer.

3. Apllications Menu. On windows every app have own menu, here all apps have same menu on top bar. When user need to find ex. preferences it's allways in the same place by clicking on app name from top bar.

It's very, very good solition :> congratulations .

4. Work of finder ... On the beginning it's little strange, but after a few days it's very friendly and intuitive. One thing is annoyng, center of system is't main folder of finder or something like My Computer in windows but desktop, every disks are mounted on desktop. On windows i allways keep clean on my desktop but here it's little harder to do.

 

Network :

 

I have neostrada ( adsl connection ) with SpeedTuoch 330, and this my nightmare :/

Even on linux systems it was making problems but there at least it was correctly installed. Here it's no way to install it :/ On luck i have another PC with PII 433MHz and Win98 .... God... how many hours i spend to connect this two systems... On standard windows settings it's no way to do this. With help came WinRoute, whit this everything works perfectly from internet to local network browsing from mac to 98 and from 98 to mac :) Thanks God :>

I started off with 256mb DDR266. When i upgraded to 1GB dual channel ddr400 MacOS became MUCH more responsive, especially when switching between applications. The memory upgrade alone took my computer from roughly 700mhz eMac performance to a 1.25ghz PowerMac G4
