why not just use CloneCD and burn it. (dot)image is a CloneCD CD extracted image.

OSX has boot CD.

It run from CD that why you see the CD image with X on it. No floppy like winie

I didn't think such a slick site would hook up with crap like Gator...

Thanks for the icon packs, monsieur!

what do you mean emulate?

if you mean the aqua interface, you can grab WindowBlinds, StyleXP, LiteStep and several other themeing tools, and find an Aqua-esque theme to apply.

IMO, most of those Aqua-esque themes blow.

if you mean running OS/X on an iX86, it won't work because it looks for a Mac BIOS and a PPC CPU. there are boards and ROM emulators you can buy, but so far, i don't think any support OS/X

at the heart of OS/X are some great features you'll never find on XP--not GUI features, but filesystem features, kernel, multimedia features, etc. Microsoft is always playing catch-up.

do macs suck? not the ones running OS/X. not only can you run mac appz, you got all the Macromedia, Adobe lines. microsoft even offers it's Office suite. best of all, any applications that run on Unix, can run on OS/X.

OS/X is one of the best things to happen to a Unix derivitive, since linux, and if it is ever ported to iX86, microsoft will def. have something to contend with...

i've never used a Mac, but I have to agree with that one point. If I could go and get OSX to run on my x86 I would not hesitate to give it a go. Of course that's no surprise, I guess, I think a LOT of people would be tempted to at least try it.

However, I have a feeling that a lot of the advantages of MacOSX might be dependant on a certain hardware process or structure that x86 "lacks"? Or no?
