Did you install it on a non-Mac? If so, how did you manage that?
It's called OSx86, basically, it's a hack for x86 OSX to allow it to run on regular PC's.
My personal experience with it involves kernel panics, kernel panics, more kernel panics, and then some.

Hmm, more like one of those extreme buggy quests you can never hope to solve if you accidently do one tiny thing out of order...

Yes, I know about them, but I never used either.
But both of them seem to be trying to be BSD with a Linux kernel ... If I want to use BSD I would use ... BSD ... Not BSD with a Linux kernel ...

Anyway ... I installed CentOS, so far it seems rather nice, other than the fact that 1680x1050 resolution doesn't work (odd ... But seems morel like Xorg issue than CentOS).

It seems to be pretty desktop oriented, no gcc by default for example, Windows-style pop-up ``balloons'' for updates, etc.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
