OSX for PC?

So Shan and Lin were discussing their Macs yesterday and I thought back to the simple days of using OSX. Thinking back, I rather liked OSX really, and with a desktop PC back home in Singapore, I won't really be needing a gaming laptop (with Windows) next year. Plus now that OSX is designed for Intel chips, there's a whole lot more flexibility offered where applications are concerned.

My Dell is currently less than 2 years old, though, and I don't particularly relish the though of paying for a new machine I don't really need, particular since hardware-wise it is actually more powerful than a MacBook. So after a little Googling, I've discovered that OSX Leopard has already been hacked for PC installation.

I was tempted to try it immediately, but it seems a risky thing to do - I'll probably give it a go during the Easter break, when I'm back in Singapore and can backup my data first. Who knows, if it works well (I'm not too hopeful, but who knows?), I might even make it my primary OS.
