Apple and Windows

Apple allows Windows dual booting. Now, the real question is, will they support MacOS on commodity PC hardware?

    Actually, I think the first question is, will it be possible to triple-boot (OS X, Windows, Linux) without using some dangerous hack?

    I dunno. At some point it becomes less of a pain in the ass to shell out a couple hundred bucks for a second computer. At least with Linux, a cheapie or castoff is a viable machine. Though XP and MacOS would probably drag ass on my five year old workstation…

    Entry level iMac = $1500
    Entry level Dell PC = $1000

    In other words, three Dells for the price of two iMacs. ‘Nuff said.

    Perfectly usable HP laptop with rebates from BestBuy or Circuit City = around $700. When and if OSX runs on commodity hardware, I’ll switch immediately. Otherwise, I’ll continue to run Linux on cheap-ass computers.
