currently my desktop is down right now due to a virus. I have sent off for a new HDD and I am considering dual booting between Vista and OSX Leopard, leaving most of my internet use for OSX and Vista for gaming and Office 2007.
my question is, is this possible? and if so, then will i have trouble involving drivers for my mobo, vid card, etc.?
thanks, much appreciated!

lpchris85,
As for an OS for you, why don't you just try linux? Or if you really want something like Mac OS, try PC-BSD. At it's core, it's basically the same thing, but it's free.

As for linux distros for you, try PCLinuxOS, Ubuntu, or gOS (looks just like OS X). I think you'll be satisfied.

And it's not the legal ramifications that I was trying to warn you about; nobody really ever gets busted for software piracy unless they're running a business.

Edited by an Admin to add: You are absolutely INCORRECT about that. Period.


I was telling you it might not be a good idea to endorse things like name removed, because the site admins might have something to say about it.

You got that right.

Remainder of post removed, due to illegal content.

True, but as I said, some sites like this are run by administrators who are sensitive to the topic of piracy.

Sensitive?! I'd say you should go back and read the Terms of Use that you agreed to when all of you joined. It EXPLICITLY states we do not allow it. Period.

I suggest all of you go back and read the Terms of Use that you agreed to abide by when you joined this site.

Specifically:

The posting of links or references to warez or any other type of illegal software is strictly forbidden. By doing so you risk having your user account terminated without warning. We will NOT help anyone we suspect of having obtained their software illegally.


and

You may post content on this site, so long as the content is not:

* Illegal



Installing OS X onto a Windows-based machine is illegal. Period.

End of discussion.
