Apple Well, this will come as no surprise to OSNews readers, but as outlined in a recent BBC documentary, UK neuroscientists have studied brain scans of hard-core Apple fans and have found that their mental reactions to Apple imagery are quite similar to scans of religious devotees' brains when shown images of their iconography.

My wife uses my old iMac G5. It came with Panther, which I found a bit disappointing. It was upgraded to Tiger and then Leopard. It never needed a reinstall, nor did any Mac/MacBook here. Only used Macs I get my hands on I reinstall.

Buy a Psystar Hackintosh and I'm sure you'd need to google and fiddle around to get stuff working.
