Default Running Mac Applications in BSD
OK my goal is to run Mac Applications or The Mac Operating System, Windows, and Linux at the same time on my computer without slowing it down. I am very close. I know I can install Mac OS X x86 but I want a version of linux that can run Mac apps. if BSD is my solution then how do I run Mac Apps in it? If it's not is there a version of Linux does run Mac apps and look like Mac kind of like linspire = Windows.

AFAICT, you can't run Mac applications in *BSD because in OS X there is a proprietary layer between the FreeBSD kernel and native Mac applications.

Mac OS X and FreeBSD Kernels are very diffrent... They used FreeBSDs userland.

The only Mac OS X software you can run on *BSD or GNU/Linux afaik is that which all ready runs on them and compiles on a Mac.


I've never owned a mac so I don't know if theres a diffrence in BIOS/Hard Drive techologies but you should be able to multi-boot stuff with an Intel Mac.

OK here is what I do know. VMWare will run Mac OS X x86, Windows XP and Vista, along with other versions of linux. For some wierd reason Mac OS X x86 and Windows Vista run faster emulated on my system then they do running on their own. I have 2000 FSB which you can only get with boards that are compatible with a 2000 Hyper Transport AM2 chip. I have 128 bit 2 GB DDR2 800 RAM. (up to 16 GB) Mac OS X x86 recognizes a regular IDE hard drive. So I think that pretty much solves my problem but I still wanted something like WINE that runs Mac Apps or an Linux OS that runs Mac Apps.

usacomputertec: I heard something about MacOSX virtualization for BSD based systems, but I forget the link. I was wondering the same thing actually because I would love to just virtualize MacOSX software under BSD, port some drivers from linux, put WINE on the system, and have my dream system :idea: , but you probably just have to do some googling...
