Huh? What? Nooo…. ignore the quotes, I would never use a Hackintosh.

OK, it’s a Hackitosh hand-me-down computer. Any good apps? Laugh

Oh, the site that was :(

Unfortunately, it overheats  whole lot.

Mac…….. Bah-Humbug.       Wink

 

 

What in the world are you doing that makes your computers overheat? Seems to be a recurring issue for you.

I always get the horrid ones Confused. This one (the Windows one) has an AMD Overheat x2 chip in it, and the other one… well let’s say Apple’s fan configuration isn’t compatible with Windows’s.

EDIT: Wow are those people wrong or what. All I had to do was install a driver that lets OS X view the CPU temperature. Now I can see it’s at 63C… or 37 lower than my Windows 7 one is a lot (too much) of the time.
Why yes, my Acer has reached boiling a couple times, why do you ask?

Oh just out of courious-osity. That and to make sure that if you’re doing some  geeky thing that’s causing the overheating, that I never do it and end up with the same problem.

Nope, nothing geeky. Unless you count watching Youtube videos geeky?

(Yes, the Mac overheats watching Youtube videos and the other one overheats if you’re watching Youtube and doing anything else….)

It may be important, but it’s not worth spamming completely unrelated (READ: NOT EVEN THE SAME OS) topics….

Wow, this is already a bit off topic.  For some good programs, try Opera Laugh

By “downloading now,” do you mean downloading FreeBSD or Opera?

Opera. I actually installed (dragged to the Application folder) it, but I haven’t gotten a chance to use it.

Installing software on a Mac sure is easy, but not as easy as pkg_adding in BSD.  What would you prefer for installing Firefox?  Dragging it to the Applications folder, or typing “sudo pkg_add -r firefox35″

Would you rather have to move your mouse two inches (really) or have to open Terminal?

Oh wait, could you please test out my site’s Opera Widget on your Hackintosh?  Please.  You can find the download like on the second column from the left at HackMyPhone.

1. Menu bar is waaay long.

2. That’s moved as far up as possible, it’s really ugly. There’s way too much blank space at the top and part of it is hidden behind the dock on the bottom.

Thank you a lot for testing it and providing the feedback.  At least I now know it works on FreeBSD, Linux, Mac, and Windows.  Now I just need to find some way to test it on Solaris Confused

I don’t think you need to worry about your users running Solaris.

Getting back to the topic here, I see WinX is giving away WinX HD Video Converter for Mac (valued at $39.95). If you want it, just go to: http://www.winxdvd.com/giveaway/
