A planet where apes evolved from man?!?
Seriously though, a Mac using friend of mine claimed that he would love to install OS X on his Thinkpad T60p but that he's "seen it done a couple of times but it's dangerous to do as you can brick a good machine in a hurry." Now...call me crazy but I don't recall that ever being a problem. I seem to remember the use of dongles in the past but was there ever a time where flashing a BIOS (which, yes, you could conceivably "brick") or something similar was involved? I even mentioned a recent MaxPC article about using virtualization and an unlocker created by some guy named "donk" in order to create a virtual Hackintosh. Whatever the case in the past, it seems to me that virtualization is pretty easy to do these days and even doesn't have the performance hit that it used to what with quad core CPUs being common.
Just curious so I can get my data straight. There's nothing I dislike more than people spouting "ooga booga!" talk to scare others who might otherwise be curious to try new things. I think it's awesome that we've reached a point where being able to try different OSs and software isn't the black art that it used to be. Especially if someone just wanted to try and get their game on or had to use some proprietary corporate software that might only work in a Windows environment.
