    OS X on PC or Win XP on Mac by utilizing some sort of emulator probably won't give you accurate performance. I'd probably search for as much as possible unbiased comparison on two platforms on the Internet.

    Actually all I have to do is buy Mac OS X. I have like 3 Windows Versions on CDs and that includes Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition.

    BTW, I'm not trying to show off. Sorry if it sounds like I am bragging.

    your missing the point.

    YOU CANNOT PUT A MAC OPERATING SYSTEM ON A REGULAR PC. IT WILL ONLY WORK ON A MAC. YOU CANNOT PUT WINDOWS ON A MAC PC, IT WILL ONLY WORK ON PC.

    Better?

    Oh i see. You know, I've always been interested in Linux. Maybe I should install Gentoo Stage 3 on the new PC with my DSL connection. I want RedHat, but its discontinued .....

    OS-X is based on FreeBSD. The OS-X core, Darwin, can be installed on X86 (although for what purpose, I'm not sure).

    I hear that Red Hat 9 was the last version... either way, its too big to download even with DSL. I think I'll just fork over 10 bucks and get it on CD.

    fedora core 3 is very nice but i think gentoo is much more rewarding (as long as you can get it working)

    Last time I tried installing Gentoo, it was almost impossible. I tried 10 times and each try failed. Their documentation should be more clear. But hey, maybe I'll try again?

    But hey, maybe you want to try with distro that is easier to install, like FC3.
    I just thought that 10 tries are too many.
    Did you know why it always failed?
    Do you know how to make it install this time?

    Yeah I figured out what I did wrong last time. I left out a step, to extract the stage tarballs themselves. How much stupider can I get? lol.

    [EDIT:]
    This is going way out of topic. Somebody closed this topic plz...
