Future hacks: Mac on PCs

Apple is moving to Intel, this is good for Makers and PC modders out there. Current Apple hardware and older hardware is about to get cheap(er) and used for all sorts of things. 2. We’ll be able to run Mac OS on PCs and Windows on Macs, granted a lot of hackery will be required to make this work for unsupported hardware- but we’ll see all sorts of fun projects, mods and mutants once the dev kit and builds start getting out in the wild.

    “Windows on Macs, granted a lot of hackery will be required” – I think that much less hackery will be required in this direction and sincerely speaking this is the way I would prefer! I think also that actually Steve Jobs could allow it – running Windows on Intel Macs – just to show off that Mac OS X truly is faster….

    I wonder if the processers they use will be unmodified, or if they will just run standard x86 code. If so, Mac OS X on the Athlon 64 doesn’t seem that farfetched, either.
