Imagine the amazement on the faces of all your friends when you boot OS X on your PC. I’m not sure how useful or complete this would be but it sure would be cool to boot OS X on the Sony U.   You need an OS X CD for this to work but detailed instructions for the install using the free PearPC can be found here.

  3. Can you dual boot? Is it worth giving up Windows on the U James?

    Also: how would you aquire the drivers (like for the touchscreen, all the buttons and such) to work under the Mac OS?

    Just curious… :D

  5. I would dual boot it or not do it. I don’t think there are touch screen drivers for it but it would still be useful without it since the U has such good controls. Besides, it’s to see if it can be done. :)

  7. It’s slow. I have a G4/450, and it’s slower than that. But, it works. The install took several hours, I cant get networking working, and typing seems to go in slow motion.

    But, it’s fun to play around with. :)

  9. I would like to know how well it performs on an athlon64 based machine with 512k of ram? If it can come close to a g4 at 700 to 800mhz its really worth it.

  10. I think it will get EXTREMELY slow if you have just 512K of RAM, lol
