    Default FlyakiteOSX-Get a Free Mac on your PC

    I just picked up the newest issue of PC World and there was a small article on this with a link http://www.flyakiteosx.com/.
    My question is, has anyone here tried it? If so, any problems? Has your PC slowed down or any other weird things to report?
    I am tempted to download & try it but I don't want to screw up my PC, but gawd I miss a Mac.
    Any info would be appreciated.
    Thanks y'all.
    Brian

    What cutting insight. I'm more than certain that this is precisely the sort of info graphicbrian was looking for.

    There's a bus leaving town soon, how's about being under it?


    Odd how the material actually states "FlyakiteOSX DOES NOT contain any spyware or ad-ware of any kind". Interesting thing, nonetheless. I'd attempt it, yet this is a communal PC.

    Best of luck, brian.

    OK, I just downloaded this thing, and I'm trying it out. It's really just a Windows "theme" designed with Mac OS features. Plus they change the boot screens to Mac screens and a few things like that. No big deal, and it hasn't slowed my PC down than any other theme would (since all the sounds and animations do eat up resources, regardless of what theme you use)

    It's harmless. Give it a try if you want. I'm not a Mac user, so I can't speak to how authentic it is compared to real OsX.

    Thanks for the feedback guys (except the dude that has an appointment with a bus.)
    I'm going to give it a shot. I figure what the hell. That's what system restore is for, right?
    This should be fun.
    Ford, me know if anything weird turns up after it's been on your PC for a while. I will do likewise.

    i'm a mac user who works in windows-based software design and development.

    that application turns your machine in to a slug that looks like OSX.

    if you want a computer, go pick up a mac mini.

    'nuff said.
    not another dime from me, fellas...

    I can theorhetically run Windows on my Mac, but as of yet have
    had no reason and zero desire to do so.

    My next computer will be a Mac again. I'm into games plus I'm a graphic artist working in the sign industry, and in this area at least, it's all PC based.
    Kinda sucks when you're used to a Mac. But, when in Rome.....
    I downloaded this software on an older PC I have. It's pretty cool.
    Haven't really noticed a difference in performance since this computer is a slug anyway.
    However, I will not put it on my newer gaming computer.
