Mac OS on Windows on Linux on ...

You know what I find amusing?

MacOS running inside the Windows NT port of an M68K emulator, running on Wine.

Also, this is another screenshot to add to my collection.



...of my monitor, that is. :)



There are a couple things to note here. First, the fact that I can access my UNIX homedir in MacOS, by mapping it as a Wine drive, then exposing it to MacOS through Basilisk. Second, MacOS doesn't know what to do with a disk that has 22 GB free space. :)

Also...I find a MacOS desktop with Gentoo wallpaper highly amusing.


Why am I doing this, you ask? Simple...I have a CPE 215 project due on Friday. I have to write the game of Life in assembler for the Motorola 68K platform.

Go me...I can turn an exercise in geekiness into something even more geeky! :-D

Tease.

This screen shot is a bit like watching someone juggle two knives, a burning torch, and a bowling ball.

Interesting to see "my Computer" on a Mac desktop.

Damn strai...er, gay, depending on your orientation. :)

Yes, I quite agree...and if you look at the gkrellm window in the upper left corner, you can see my CPU is having a hell of a time.

The "My Computer" is part of Basilisk...as you may have guessed, that's what lets you see normal Windows (or in my case, Linux) files.

Why didn't you just run Basilisk directly under Linux?

There's a port.

I know.

But when I tried to install and run it, it promptly crashed.

Plus, this way is cooler anyhow. :)
