Outsmart Malicious Hackers


Each day I check out the technology section of the bbc site, ok, its not the most in-depth, or techy site in the world, but it covers interesting stuff.

One interesting article http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4816520.stm talks about getting a mac to run windows. That in it self is quite cool, but to my mind its the wrong way.

Who wants to put windows on a mac? what’s the point? You can buy PC hardware for less then the mac, and they run windows with out a problem. Well…. kinda.

So, what would be better? Getting OSX to run on a PC. Do that and what you have is some completion to windows with an existing user base, financial backing and at least most of the applications business want.

Business still counts for more of the computer market. Linux has never really broken in to the desk top market, main I think because people “into” linux don’t do gui. Fundamentally linux geeks tend to not believe its worth the effort, so the gui always seems to be less the perfect.

OSX, now that is a desk top platform, to my understanding its based on linux, and a lot of linux apps can be built to run on it. But, like I said, its a mac so it already has a lot of the applications people want and need.

I could be wrong but to me I think this is only the start. I don’t like mac’s. I don’t want a mac, but I see OSX and it look sexy. Maybe if I didn’t need a mac to try it out I’d give it a go, but buying hardware just to run an OS I might not like? I think not.

    It’s based on BSD not Linux.

    But yeah, OSX is hawt.

    You can already run OSX on normal x86 PC’s; not legally, but there are patches available that allow you to do so.

    There’s a competition going on about who can come up with a solution on how to dual boot windows on a mac. The prize money of US$13,854 has been won for those who could make this work. Alot of people donated money for this prize money.

    Go to onmac.net to read more and also download the bootloader to boot windows in a macbook pro !!…

    Yeh Mac OSX’s Mach kernel is basically based on the NextSTEP OS, which in turn is based on the 4.2BSD kernel.

    How insane the idea may be, for $14K I would’ve attempted to get XP to run on it too, if I had one. ;)

    I can’t imagine life without OSX.

    Even when you do like OSX (how can you not), its barely worth it.
