OS X Makes Slow Debut on PC: Two guys in Germany have built a PowerPC emulator to run OS X on an Intel or AMD-based machine. While this is cool, it’s not nearly ready for prime-time yet:
Biallas and Weyergraf warn PearPC is only a version 0.1 release and is still very experimental. By their admission, it is incomplete, unstable and painfully slow — running about 500 times slower than the host system.
It is “not meant for productive use,” the pair caution on the site. “Don’t use it on important data, it WILL destroy them sooner or later!”
My question is: is this is a travesty to Macphiles? Yes, you’re on PC, but it is OS X. Is just having the Mac software enough, or is the Mac hardware an un-extricable part of the Mac experience?
