I normally don’t link to outside blogs but this one needs to be mentioned because it relates to my Dell Mini 9 Leopard install video. Â Here’s the story on Gizmodo, here it is on 9 to 5 Mac.
I found it odd that Wired had posted a video on how to install Leopard on an MSI Wind when a) it was sort of old news, and b) it was a much more complicated process than the one I used. But even more odd was the fact that they were suggesting people download a hacked version of Leopard from Pirate Bay. Apple eventually got wind (pun intentional) of it and early reports were that they were suing Wired. Now that the dust has settled it appears that Wired has just been asked to pull the video.
Will I be asked to pull my video? Â I hope not – but I also doubt it. Â The fact is that in my video you can see me break the seal on a brand new Leopard box. No where do I ever suggest stealing Leopard – quite the opposite. If you’re going to experiment with Leopard on a non-apple box I think you should go out and get a fresh copy.
I’ll also give the update that our Dell Mini Hackintosh is still working great. Â However, if and when Apple releases a reasonable replacement for it, we’ll sell the Dell and buy a real Apple.
