it's amazing how quickly this scene is growing and progressing.

if your cpu supports the SSE3 instruction set your in luck. SSE2, will take a few more hours. ;)

has anyone around here tried the vmware method.

i might be tempted to try in that direction just so that i can have a play around (or confirm how much i dislike apple's stuff).

vmware method is great, the one where you "repair" the tiger vmware image to a secondary darwinx86 formatted partition/hd is what i used

at startup, there is a delay of 10 seconds to input boot parameters "hit any key"

use for top speed the following... "platform=x86pc" no quotes

then go tweak crazy ;)

dualboot, become owner, graphical tweaks, delete "/System/Library/Extensions/AppleTPMACPI.kext" (important) etc.

in a nutshell osX is much peppier than xp on my machine, even without hardware acceleration of video. yikes.
