    RS, nobody is bullying you.

    You're not the victim; you're the instigator. You are condescending to members of the forum, and they are getting fed up with your behavior. Take some responsibility.

    OK, so that's NSFW...
    And unexpected.
    And large.

    Yeah. I'm cool w/ it. It's the guys in my pod behind me that might object. I shouldn't be goofing off.

    Serves me right. I've been on-the-wagon for the better part of a year - haven't logged on to any science forum from my work computer since last fall. So proud.
    But I fell off the wagon just a few days ago. Once an addict, always an addict.

    allow a reiteration

    What is a "hackintosh"?
    and
    Why would you want to do this?

    Which class are you?

    According to you an electrician, who owns a house, and sends his kids to college, is working class and a waitress who lives in the ghetto, does drugs and has 5 kids is middle-class and a garbage man who owns a rental house is upper class.

    I think you might have a grip on being the class clown but otherwise your understanding of classes is limited. It's kind of a dated concept in the first place and doesn't really apply in the U.S. and where ever you live doesn't apply it in the ways that you have suggested.

    how about Windows?
    install the insider preview and then hack it?

    I believe it would be a better idea to code your own operating system based on Linux and its kernel rather than hack and modify an operating system exclusively owned by someone else. I believe Linux and its kernel are free and open source so anybody who wants to use it to create their own operating system is free to do so.

    VGA? God, that's old.

    Matt, MacOS has had a Mach kernel, based on a UNIX distro. I might be out of date on that since I won't touch a Mac, but it was true in the past.

    Linux is free, unless you want a "value-added" distro for folks who can't write code..

    High Sierra is great, I am using Nvidia GT640 and it works out of the box.
    My TP Link wifi card also works.

    That is cool! Is it free and open source like Linux and the Linux kernel? Is it written in mostly C and Assembly like Linux and the Linux kernel or in another language like C++, which is basically C with classes and objects added.

    Pretty sure it's C and assembler, but that's easy enough to check out. Mach is pretty old now too.
