    Looks like I just found my next computer to put Kalyway on. Thank you Rota.

    I do agree with you about "Macs = security through obscurity". But I am not sure what you mean by "If you really know what you're doing you don't get a Mac". What complex things are you doing that requires so much knowledge?
    Not saying YOU said anything about viruses. I was just continuing my rant...yes I felt much better after that.

    And yes, I've used a "real" Mac. What am I missing with my "hackintosh"? The stupid keyboard? The annoyingly small mouse? Is it the sub par monitor? I doubt yours has an IPS panel like mine, you're probably sporting a cheap TN panel (if it is an Apple IPS panel you paid big $$$$ I'm sure). Have you ever used a well built hackintosh? PLEASE let me know what I'm missing, I'm dying to know. It runs flawlessly.

    And you still never said what your Mac can do that my Windows 7 machine can't do.

    I think the Mac vs. PC talk needs to end.
    It ALWAYS leads into an argument.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    I have never had to built a hackintosh. When Apple releases a new MacBook Pro, I go to the Apple Store and slam down the cash. I don't know why you guys think that I give a crap what you all can and can not do. All I said was that I really enjoy my mac and I would never go back to windows. So enjoy your windows machine and I will have fun with my mac. kthxbai

    I wasn't bragging about my computer knowledge...I was actually trying to delve into your vast knowledge on why a hackintosh doesn't give me the true "Mac Experience".

    Same way if you were to load the iPhone OS onto a G1 wouldn't give you the "iPhone Experience". Wow, is that really that hard to get?

    Well I agree that the iPhone OS on a G1 would blow because the touch screen on a G1 sucks. I'm talking about a Mac desktop vs. a hackintosh desktop. The input devices on a Mac (i.e. keyboard and mouse) don't give you an "amazing Mac experience" IMO. At least I hope that's not what blows up the skirt of Mac users. The way OS X operates on a Mac and my hackintosh is exactly the same.

    One per email/billing address.

    I don't see how that comparison is valid: 99% of the iPhone experience is based in its multi-touch screen and the hardware is drastically different. In addition, I used a hackintosh before (I'm not sure if you have), but hackintosh is pretty much like a Mac. However, like I said earlier, that experience varies depending on hardware. It was my friends one too. Also, it can be a lot of trouble depending on what hardware you have. I wouldn't do it since I have a Mac already, but it is a decent alternative for people who don't want to buy a Mac.

    I think I read somewhere that the G1's screen is actually capable of multitouch.. it just doesn't have it...
    Idk... was a while ago.

    I just think its more than just the OS that makes me love my MBP. If you guys disagree fine. Enjoy your windows machines and your hackintoshs

    Posting a Win 7 post on an Apple forum is not a good idea



    LOL. No I get to argue with him
    The legality of posting customized ipsws is very questionable.
    I know I don't allow it on the Dev team's blog...
    but then again this isn't my site to rule over...

    There is no question that it is warez. Thats why the dev team does not allow it either. It has always been against site rules to post custom firmwares. BTW ggab I gave out several infractions in that thread for posting custom firmwares. I just saw yours and smiled

    ^ I don't see the big deal: I'm a MBP owner who loves Windows. However, I got mine for free as a gift without prior knowledge. I probably would have bought a Windows computer if I didn't get the Mac.

    EDIT: @Angie
