Pausing only to subtly point out what worthless turds Wired’s commenters are, Gadget Lab’s Charlie Sorrel has posted a fantastic write-up of his experience installing OS X on the MSI Wind.
What caught my attention was not the project itself — everyone knows it can be done — or the instructions — it’s basically as easy as downloading a package and preparing a USB thumb drive — but Charlie’s observations on performance:
All in all, it actually runs OS X a lot faster than XP.
That’s almost unfathomable to me: the latest versions of Leopard run like a hobbled, bipedal hog even on my first-gen MacBook Pro. But if true, that’s simply Holy Grail: I can deal with a third-party WiFi program and a dead headphone jack for a paperback sized Mac.
