I am currently diving into new regions and attempting to load up OSx86 and give it a try. Has anyone else touched base with this? ~~disclaimer: this is solely for educational purposes only. I am using this to allow my knowledge of technology to grow to other levels. No hamsters were harmed in the making of this topic~~ oh and FTR... I am debating on buying a mac as a multimedia center for my 42" lcd... I am only installing this as a trial to see how and if everything is going to work the way I want it to. If all goes well I am glady going to restore this machine back to vista for regular BS and buy me a badass multimedia device.
