Yes OSX 10.5 is great for people that know nothing about computers and also don't want to run what 95 percent of software support. No one cares about juicy interface, as long as you get things done. I dont need that dock on the bottm it just takes up space. Doing something in MAC is like ***, no configs no nothing, junk OS

Anyhow these testers begin the article on PC Magazine by saying the most robust best OS ever created is XP , They tested against OSX 10.5 and Vista both 32 and 64 and clearly 75 percent of them said. XP blowz away all OSes including the WindowME or I mean Asta La Vista joke OS. Microsoft wanted more control they got it, and ruined everyones experience with this joke of a OS. This is why Windows 7 is due out in 2010 says uncle billy.. WHY ? I wonder why, cuz Vista was junk and the new OS will be more junk.

Taking 5 seconds to copy a file over is ridiculous, However the SP1 soo called will fix this problem soo its faster like 3 seconds or 2 ,,, However XP is instant. No one cares about DX10 either,,, just my thoughts.... Ive read plenty and done research. I come here and all I hear is Vista problems. LOL

EPIC FAIL!

I don't think that's how it works. From my understanding, they're using an EFI emulator, the same way Bootcamp acts as a BIOS emulator for running windows on Macintosh computers.

If it's FOSS, and the licence gave them rights to distribute it, there is nothing wrong with that.

Anyone can sell open source software.

The EFI hack still doesn't work with a genuine OS X disc, thus the disc is hacked and it's not a legal install.

We could argue about this being a valid lawsuit or not all day, but the fact is that Apple has lawyers that are so good, they got sued by Creative, lost, and ended up winning in the end with the settlement. These are the best lawyers in the world, and openmac doesn't have any lawyers, or at best a crappy one. They will be gone so quick, it'll be like they were never here.

That's life, deal with it. Oh, and everyone that yells about Apple being overpriced can get a job that doesn't involve fixing and overclocking their computer all day.

Edit: Just to add, my friend made a hackintosh and 10.5.2 update killed it. This openmac stuff is crap.

Double Edit: http://gizmodo.com/380488/psystar-ex...ks-like-a-hoax seems like it's a scam of some sort.

I don't know for sure, though. But as for the word "native," I think the bottom line is that it runs "natively" on x86 hardware. Different drivers might be required, but it's still a native run, right?

I think that's how it works.

I don't know, but how is that pertinent?

They probably aren't going to take this to court. Here's why:

http://www.wired.com/gadgets/mac/new.../apple_psystar

According to the article, a breach of the EULA isn't going to hold in court, and Psystar hasn't infringed on any patents. So instead of taking them to court, Apple is more likely to just kill OpenMac with updates.

You say they are cheaper than Sony's? Sony and alienware computers are well built (not saying macs arent) but you are paying for what you are getting.

Heres a classic example

The iPhone made by Apple

The iPhone here in the UK costs £260 to buy on contract or retails for about £300 on ebay.

Now..the touchscreen only costs $33 to make. The hardware inside it? Well lets have a look



Thats a grand total of $280 to manufactor which is about £140.

£140!!! it costs DOUBLE that to buy so that proves what you said wrong.

Now my phone the LG Viewty retails for about £112..thats about $248

You can buy it for that much so the manufactoring cost will be lower. But the Viewty has a touchscreen, a 5mp camera, radio, bluetooth, 3G etc.

Put a better touchscreen on it at a cost of $33 and its still cheaper than the iPhone but it has better parts. The most expensive part is the flash memory at $70.


Apple are ripping of customers making them pay double what the product is worth. Why? Because it looks cool and its all fanboy tax
Interesting list. Your forgetting about R&D though.
