Death To My Hackintosh

April 5th, 2008

Apple / Mac, MS / Windows

Well, it appears I’m going to be using Microsoft Vista for a little while. Yesterday, my Hackintosh started to freeze up every couple of hours. After further investigation I realized that my USB ports, among other things, were failing on the motherboard. Serves me right for going sub-bargain-basement. I’m going to give my Mac hacking a rest for 4-6 weeks since it looks like the cat’s out of the bag and Mac OS X Leopard isn’t going anywhere new and exciting for a while.

Which leads me back to my first sentence. Yep, Windows Vista. Why did I do it, you might ask? Well, after being a hard core Windows XP guru since the pre-alpha days of Whistler when it was nothing more than Windows 2000 with some…. “stuff,” I’m looking for the next computer challenege to keep me busy and I think Vista’s just what I need. I’m still trying to get Vista “just right” so it’s usable with all my frequent applications including a wide range of high-end Adobe products. We’ll see how that goes as my next article will show you how to really make Vista fly, and I’m not talking about the common bullshit ways…
