Do you remember of PearPC?

Do you know that before the first OSx86 (Hackintosh) efforts to run Mac OS X on a regular PC start, and even before Apple switch from it’s RISC PowerPC processors and use Intel’s x86 processors, we could use Mac OS X at our regular PCs with x86 processors?

Yes, believe me… Barely impractical (based on my own experience), but doable using PearPC…

PearPC is a PowerPC Platform Emulator, but, as you may have noticed at my comment above, I didn’t have  a good experience using it…

Not because of PearPC itself, he did what he should do, but, just imagine… If I’m not wrong, the installation took about 6 hours…

And also, think about you spend between 30~40 minutes only to start the OS on a new machine (for that time) with a Athlon 64 2800+ processor…

If at least after the 6 hours of installation + 30 minutes to start the OS we could use it on a fluid form, it would be worth a lot…

But it was impracticable… And I never tried to use it again…

But also, I didn’t have to wait so long… Fortunately, after a while, JaS released his Universal 10.4.8 DVD…
