With the advent of PearPC a large portion of the computing world was stunned as people watched OS X starting up on their very own x86 PCs. While this 0.3 release is not as ground breaking as the first it follows along the lines of the second with good speed improovements & complete fullscreen support.
PearPC 0.3 Released

Event if one doesn’t want to run OSX. It’s a pretty cool piece of software. Valuable for the whole developer community.
Indeed, I’ve also run Darwin and Debian sucessfully on it… Although without GUIs…
I don’t have a whole lot of techie friends, but of the few I do have, I love to see some of their reactions to seeing OS X boot up on my PC. I love playing with things like PearPC and BOCHS even though I have never done anything productive with them… Well actually I did learn alot about how computers work to get the emulations running, which I guess is a semi – productive use of time.
” Yesterday evening at 23:00 one of my best friends, one of my best critics, one of the most valuable programmers of PearPC, the one who could help me in all situations, the one with whom I had the best time of my life, died after getting hit by a train.
Stefan ‘steveman’ Weyergraf — Rest In Peace. We’ll never forget you. ”
The guy got hit by a freaking train! Thats a crappy joke man, show some respect.
VMWare, Bochs, VMWare….virtualization is making huge strides.
In three or four years, with processors getting faster, they will be able to emulate through software each other fast enough for most end-user desktop apps that hardware will truly be commoditized.
Apple please head this off by moving to x86 now. There is no future in your exotic hardware.
… There is no future in your exotic hardware…
Apple make more money from selling hardware and services than from the OS itself.
Apple’s hardware is pretty much off the shelf parts. The G5 is different, but no more exotic then AMDs 64bit chips. The G5 does have a exotic big brother in IBMs power line, but that s not the same thing that apple uses.
I’d like to moderate your comment down. You know it’s not really wise to post links to illegal stuff.
It’s interesting that the guy from emulators.com that also got near the goal with Mac emulation got arrested. Is it only coincidence? 🙂
All respect to steveman… RIP
May I please speak my disgust on how people here respond to the death of Steveman?
I find it utterly disgusting to make stupid remarks about something like that. It clearly shows the lack of intellect some of you around here seem to have.
Let’s see how y’all tend to feel when someone makes a dumb remark when your best friend passes away.
If this project reaches the stage where all aspects of Mac OS can be run on a PC smoothly and with no great speed loss, Apple will raise the price of Mac OS through the roof for those who have not purchased a Mac. Still, I’d love to be able to dual- or tri-boot with Windows, Linux and Mac OS.
yeah, that’s why i hate osnews
