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.

Yeah I tried it on a few desktop and a laptop but found the same problems. Some thing breaks on my brothers Hack every week it seems and he was the one who talked me into trying it. I found linux to be a similar experience but it is better with older hardware. With a hackintosh older hardware becomes a real problem.
