Has anyone tried Tiger x86?

  1. I'm getting a hard drive to install it. Does it include Xcode? How does speed compare to that of a similarly equipped Mac?

    See http://www.osx86project.org

    I got it installed on my Acer Ferrari 3200+ laptop, and my Shuttle SN25P Athlon64 X2 4800+ nForce4 system. Both of them worked, and were fast -- but there is ZERO driver support. NICs, Graphics, Audio -- none of them work unless you have very specific hardware.

    There are instructions on how to build a system for ~$200 that has exactly the hardware requirements to run OSX x86 perfectly -- and its something I am VERY tempted to do...
     
  3. Did you run any PPC or Windows apps?

    My CPU has SSE3 -- so Rosetta works... but why would I run any Windows apps? Without workign with the OSX86 WINE project, you cannot run Windows apps in ANY OSX implementation.
