Mac OS X A few days ago, we concluded (yes, we did!) that it was cool to run Windows 3.1 on your Nokia N95 using Qemu. Of course, the Apple world couldn't stay behind, and now we have one of Apple's obsolete operating systems running on the iPhone: System 7, also using Qemu.

No, we didn't. What we concluded was beer and chicks are cool, no, are awesome... and running Windows 3.1 on a Nokia N95 was pointless and only gave geeks erect nipples. ;)

We didn't conclude that either. Beer tastes horrible. Ugh. Only men can drink such horrible stuff and like it! :O

And still, running System 7 on an iPhone IS cool. Almost as cool as Win3.1 on N95 ;)

Running anything on the iPhone that Apple didn't approve is cool.

Beer is awesome. Just don't drink the cheap, macro-produced crap they brew full of adjuncts like rice and corn to kill taste. I could really go for an Ayinger Ur-Weisse right about now... or a good porter, brown ale or stout. Then again, on the lager side, a Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold or some variety of Vienna lager or dunkel lager sounds good. Mmmm.

Of course, if you already think all beer is nasty, those crappy macro lagers are probably all you've drank... too bad, that's the only type of beer most people know about. Just another case where something that's clearly "best" in virtually every way gets demolished in the market (sales-wise) simply due to its higher price.

Since you make Lapin Kulta you're not really qualified to have an opinion on beer ;)
