  Some interesting statistics 08 November, 2011 

Looking over our site stats I noticed soemthing. While it is no suprise that windows holds the highest numbers (54%), the number of windows users visiting the site with internet explorer is far far less. Maybe 15% of windows users actually surf this site with IE. The majority use Firefox or Chrome.

Also of interest, of all those windows users there is still someone using Windows 98. Really?? What? As much as I love 98, whoever you are, you really should upgrade.. And we cannot forget the iPad visitors or even the lone PS3 visitor. The average screen resolution of visitors is 1280x1024 at 25% with less than 1% still operating at less then 800x600.

To all you Mac addicts. If you are getting a new Mac this year and have nothing to do with your old one, we are in need of a Mac running any version of OSX. We can provide for shipping if need be, but beyond that it will have to be a donation (unless some well-to-do sole out there wishes to buy this project a new Mac for christmas). To the rest of us, if you have an Apple store near you, you can also help by asking if they have an older outdated machine they are willing to donate to this project, unless by chance one of the geeks that works/owns the store also happens to be a programmer.

Thats enough from me for this news outburst. Until next time!

I still use Windows 98 but for nothing other than using an expensive legacy sound card (no drivers for anything later than Win98 or Mac OS 9). I\'d never browse the internet with it these days so it probably wasn\'t me in your logs ;)

Phoenixstorm: Maybe try the software at \"http://www.sandroid.org/imcross/\" (without the quotes). At first glance, it may be what you are looking for.

If you really want a mac, my housemate has an iMac which is being retired. We don\'t have a working keyboard for it. It looks like the imac G4 whose picture is on the \"imac\" wikipedia page. you can contact me at julianbrelsford-remove-this-if-­you-@re-a-human_b3ing@gmail.com­ if you want the machine. Or just install OSX directly on to a computer that was built for Windows (as my friend did with his Dell Mini 9.

Sorry, nothing worth donating. An old G4-466 runnig 10.4. with original ATI graphics and 512 MB RAM wouldn\'t really do you any good :-)
Well and it runs LinuxMint9 for PPC now anyway. There is a second one - identical - that might end up as a letterbox for it\'s cool case ;-)

Only Intel PC I have is a p3 800 with 512mb ram. My AMD based system could run OSX but then I have the problem of getting it to work for an AMD. And then there\'s the issue of running this legally... I don\'t own a copy of OSX. If I had a modern Intel machine I would have just bought a copy of OSX. Have any other options, email me.

You could run Xen in place of a host OS, giving Mac OS direct hardware access if you run it in Domain 0. You\'d have Mac OS running at full speed on a PC... ironic.

To put it simply. There is only so much you can do using a VM. I have looked up both using a VM as well as doing a cross-compile off of linux. Neither option is as easy as it seems. Also, neither option will allow for complete testing of any released binary. Using a vm would work out better, but having dedicated hardware for both coding and testing is far preferable to using either of the above methods.

Why not use a Linux machine... I mean, what purpose would you use the mac for? You could just as easily run a version of Mac OS X in a virtual machine if you really NEED to have mac. The choice of virtualization solution is easy. Use VirtualBox, Xen, or KVM. Please, tell me why you need a mac.
