I use Kalyway on my desktop. I guess it depends on what hardware you have as to what distro you choose. Kalyway works perfectly on my desktop, all hardware working with drivers included on the Kalyway DVD, so it's the perfect choice for me.

 

Hey, I was just voter number 1000. Do I win a date with Scarlett Johansson or anything?

Kalyway, coz I have only downloaded it and cant be bothered to dload the other builds (kalyway took about 5 days to download for me :S too many leechers and too few seeders :S)

Kalyway has always been the most reliable for me across a whole range of hardware. Recently i have made the switch to Iatkos v4i and i'm very impressed... I find i get better performance from Iatkos but Kalyway's release seems to support alot of hardware and is ideal for beginners :blink:

 

cheers,

I've got an almost perfect install with Kalyway.. it was first distribution of Leopard which i installed, everything worked out of box, except ethernet, but with just a simple kext i solved the problem..

Although I mainly used Kalyway releases for both Tiger and Leopard, I would have to say that the latest IDeneb works the best on my machine. It never crashes and everything worked right out the box.

Mine is retail, on my hardware only few pathes were needed

HDEnabler, few of disablers and efi strings for gfx

and of course bootloader (chameleon)

 

So i've made little package witch contains necessary kexts,

chameleon ... if for some reason some day reinstall will be needed

then it wont complicate whole process.

I would choose Kalyway. I hope Kalyway will have a 10.5.5 update patch. Kalyway is stable and better for me

 

You can update your KALYWAY to 10.5.5 without pb PM me if you need help

Chaos Test 5 (Tiger 10.4.10) from Netkas' Team is, so far, the most reliable distribution I've ever tried. Works perfect on my two mobo's :( 100% working, 90% oob and 10% after apply the patches. I'm quite happy with it!!. I'm just wondering if there were another distribution (test 6 and so on) to be a powerfull 10.4.11 distribution. :dev:

 

Sorry, I love Tiger, just like Leopard. :wacko:

iATKOS 10.5.5 works so well on my dell xps 1530 4gig.

 

Prior to this I had kalyway 10.5.2 and that worked ok before I upgraded to 4gig RAM. After that I would give kernel panic after 10mins.

 

So I decided to try iATKOS and has not

Crashed ever since. Very happy with the distro.

I've successfully installed and updated Kalyway 10.5.2 (you didn't fix the spelling of that one yet!) iATKOS and JaS 10.5.4 on various PCs.

 

Next choice is easy because when PPF3 is released, PCWiz' iPC is the only distro that supports the IDE controller on my motherboard and that's where my DVD drive is. So until i can get a SATA DVD drive that's the only distro I can install.

 

At this moment the Asus P5Q-E in my signature is running a clone of the Jas OSx86 install from my old PC.
