A fine example of OS X on unsupported hardware…

    How about a Performa 630?  It took forever to install…

    Hey David, now that you’ve been so “successful”, why not try it on a Compact Mac like the SE30?
    It’s a 68030 like the Performa630, after all, what could be so difficult…

    SE/30? Child’s play. My Mac Plus boots from OS X on a floppy. Aqua scales to 1-bit color surprisingly well. But uh, I don’t have a picture. Yeah, that’s it.

      For the record, the Performa 630 is a 68LC040, not an 030.

    How’d you get the screen resolution up to 512x384? Did you find a hack? Mine won’t do anything but 512x342.

    And how many bounces does it take to open IE on your system? Mine takes about 60-65, but that’s because of the floppy. With a hard drive, I’d expect somewhere around 50.

    I hacked the screen of a Color Classic into it… still only works in black and white though.

    Nope, I like to save all the CPU power for DVD encoding.

    Have you heard? nVIDIA is working on a 030PDS slot version of the GeForce4, finally allowing both the SE/30 and the IIsi to run Quake 3 at a blazing 12 frames per second in a 320x240 window! (A SCSI version is planned for Mac Plus support, maybe even a version to clip over the 68000 DIP chip on the 128k/512k!)

    Nubus support, unfortunately, isn’t planned.

    I find that the Mac Portable is an excellent choice for running OS X. Its wide screen makes Final Cut Pro a real joy.

    Yep, and that big-ass lead acid battery lets you edit your video for hours in the back yard.
