Hardware, Embedded Systems Over at Wired Gadget Lab, they're taking a look back at several people who've gone to a bunch of trouble to hack up and deal with the pitfalls of netbooks running OSX. As the story's title states, it ain't pretty. In a nutshell, they found that even if you load a nice OS onto a cheap, tiny computer, you still have to deal with the inherent downsides of a cheap, tiny computer, and when you run an Apple OS on a non-Apple machine, you'll have some software problems. I read this article with great interest, because a few months ago I bought an MSI Wind (the same netbook that this guy used) with thoughts of putting OSX on it. But this article set me to thinking about netbooks, the mythical Apple netbook, and Apple's Newton legacy.

i'm running mac os on my dell xps410 (quad 2.4GHz, 8GB RAM) since tiger 10.4.7 and i love it. for me vista was no option and i like to play with photoshop sometimes which is a no go on Linux unless you want it to run under wine. as a real vista hater i must say Windows 7 is really great OS from MS after long time but Mac OS suits all my needs pretty well and if i really need something from windows world there's vmware+xp
