    Not a big deal

    Apple hasn't had a chance to fine tune OS X to run on hardware it hasn't completely designed yet so who cares about this development?

    Not a good deal, either

    seems like all these early experiments ensure is that Apple will take further steps to keep this from happening in the final hardware release.

    bogus videos

    Those videos prove nothing. First of all, why is it not full screen? Secondly, the videos dont show anyone operating the keyboard or a mouse. I honestly couldn't read the About this Mac screen either. What you see on the screen could just be a full screen video playing that was recorded on an actual Mac. So I havent seen OS X actually running on an ordinary PC as this person is suggesting.

    Video drivers...

    not yet written is the simple reason why it is not yet full screen. There's no doubting this is real. Yes it could be faked, but if it was faked, they'd make sure it was running full-screen so that such an obvious flaw was not apparent. The fact that it is flawed, adds, not detracts, from its credibility.

    Beta version

    Besides the version that went out to developers is only a beta version for testing and developing. You think Apple has really secured this thing down tight yet. If you do, you're a fool. Let's see what happens when they bring them to market. Then we'll see how many can actually hack it and make it work the way it's supposed to. Not at half screen little window and such. Wouldn't it be easier to just buy a Mac anyways? Then you'll get the proven hardware and OSX will definately work every time. And when an update comes out you won't need to hack it again. That's if you will be able to in the first place when they really are released.

    man

    I still feel very queezy about this. I was there on day one of the Mac (and before) and I feel disgusted about Apple working with Intel. the least they could have done is worked with AMD, which is more like Apple and in a way would have worked WAY harder then Intel for Apples business. Intel should have been the fall back plan.

    I can't stop feeling like Senator Palpatine warped Steves mind, and now we Steve is going to become Darth Jobs. s***.

    Apple Loves This

    Apple doesn't officially support running Mac OS X on Intel processors, and they will NOT support running Mac OS X on Intel processors, so they love developments like this. It makes Windows users want to try Mac OS X on their current Intel processors... and then when they encounter some snag that doesn't work properly, they will already be in love with Mac OS X so they'll buy a Mac. Of course, Apple may release Mac OS X for all Intel machines in the next 5 years and then really give Microsoft a run for their money.

    MS is Crapping Pants

    This is the start of major OS X platform growth. I would expect developer interest will spike accordingly. Microsoft has got to be worried. Competition has arrived....and it looks really fast on x86 hardware.
