There is a copy of the AppleTV OS floating around on the torrents now and some folks are yoinking it off their AppleTV to see what happens when the run it on their Macs, el frijole writes…

This is what happened when I loaded the AppleTV OS onto a partition on my Mac mini.

Here’s what I had to do to get this:
1) hold down option for the bootloader
2) pick the “OSBoot” partition
3) hold apple-v to induce verbose mode
4) while the EFI is loading (the driver loading screen ), unplug the keyboard
5) wait, and watch.

I think there’s some more work to be done.
