Mac OS X on a Tablet PC? Probably not…

Images-1-8 Someone is saying they got Mac OS X running on a Tablet PC. Apple’s Developer Transition Kit offers information, sample code, software, and hardware developers need to build Universal Binary applications to run on Macs using Intel processors. As expected, people are also trying to install OS X on Intel platform computers that they already own. Charles Alexander installed OS X on his Toshiba Portege M200 Tablet PC. The system runs. The digitizer functions. He’s run into issues with screen rotation, networking, USB, etc [via] Link. Likely a hoax, but one can dream.

  1. Not to be *too* critical or anything, but… The question is, why would you want to…? For that matter, why would you want a tablet PC in the first place? So you can write in *longhand*…? Holy cow, and suffer the pain & itch of cramped hands/wrists, slow writing sped, unreadable scrawl, and difficulty translating the stuff accurately into ASCII text..? Keyboards were supposed to liberate us from all of that. I’ll keep my iBooks, with their keyboards. If I need a pen-input device for drawing, I’ll get one or build it from scrap parts:-).
