    Apple’s new Mac Pro will max out at 28 CPU cores, but that’s projected to cost as much as a midrange sports car. Nothing a bare metal Hackintosh can’t fix…

                      What is iMessage & Facetime? Something edible? Never used neither of above in my MBP 2015 till it died completely.

                            I've done this since 10.4 and was probably the first to try and use TianoCore (booting from a floppy) to boot it the EFI way on a non-EFI AMD.

                            Back then it was already fairly painless to setup using a VM with direct disk access to do the install and install the Chameleon bootloader.

                            Later when Sandy Bridge was released it became dead easy using either Chameleon or Clover, even getting GPU's working.

                            Now with the EFIvolution of Clover, it is equally simple.

                            You just need to generate a correct smbios for your hardware to get iMessage etc working. The smbios info even has control over how the iGPU is used on supported CPU's like my 2600k (maximum VRAM differs between iMac and MacMini) and what power management features get activated at boot.

                            So don't just stick with the VM base that, just seems to work... fix it properly.

                                    Well, if you want to do truly professional editing, Linux is out, Kdenlive is not at all the same as Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere... For pretty much anything else, I'd choose Linux as well 😀

                                            I wonder if Linus and the LTT staff have to work hard to come up with project ideas that utilise Anthony's knowledge and experience. Anthony may be an occasionally under used resource.

                                            It's like, "What do we do with the LHC now that we have it?".
                                            "Uhh, ahh, gee, shit, uhhmm, OH I KNOW. Let's see if it can emulate particles from other universes".

                                              Worked straight away. Lucky bastards.

                                              I got Mac OS (El Capitan I think?) to run on my i7 laptop but the 3d acceleration didn't work because of the optimus controller. Found that out the hard way. It may be a surmountable problem but after doing some reading it seemed quite beyond my level of expertise.
