Mac OS on OQO?

Posted by Sam Churchill on

Engadget says the tiny OQO hand held computer has been successfully hacked to run Masc OS X Leopard.

The OQO is setup in a dual-boot Vista / OS X mode which boots Leopard in about 2 minutes and 30 seconds. It has WiFi, sound, power management and Bluetooth. The only thing missing at the moment is cellular access.

While not yet a “plug and play” hack, it’s “definitely doable,” says hacker TRF. Here’s the video.

Gee, do you suppose it will be possible to run Leopard on a $500 Atom laptop like the EeePC 900 or any run-of-the-mill UMPC?
