Virtual PC simply 'knows' when the virtual machine writes to the virtual hard drive, so it begins with a very small file, and writes to it only when needed. If I am not mistaken, such files are called sparse files. Close but no cigar. Sparse files are files that have a defined size (say 6gb), howev...

Eh, I hate pirates because they take away from the money I would be making if I were still working for software companies and what have you. However, since I now don't work for them, I don't care _as_ much, however, it still is theft. And theft is bad, in case people can't figure that out. Also, if ...

Threads like these make me sick. Who cares which has more style. Eyecandy pisses me off. The real important bits of the OS is the functionality. Can you get a terminal window in Windows that is as complete as the BSD-backend of OS X? No. How about can you get applications that don't spontaenously wr...

I've seen that hard drive images in Virtual PC 6 (.vpc6) only take up as much space as is used, and can grow until it's actually the size of the real hard drive. Anyone know how they do this? PS. When running Windows thru VirtualPC the free space on the virtual hard drive is the same free space on ...

Goddamnit, it seems this place has degenerated into shit since I started on my thesis. No. It can't. Why? Because IRIX is a) designed to run on MIPS64 RISC hardware, something which IA32 is not capable of providing, since it's only got 32-bit registers, 32-bit instructions, a completely different SH...

Herein lies the IRIX Appreciation Thread

Here is the thread where everyone shares their appreciation for the SGI masterpiece OS IRIX. I love IRIX...mostly because I worked for MIPS (until hard times struck...and now I'm a student again :( ) and I love MIPS CPU cores, which is the arch that IRIX was made for. Not to mention the IRIS Persona...

Allow me to say that a Windows port will be a long and difficult thing.

Why not switch to Linux from Windows, thereby eliminating a lot of your problems you run into in life -- buggy software, instability, activation codes and Bill Gates?

What people don't seem to grasp is that it's really not illegal to make an emulator...it's pretty illegal to use the copyrighted ROM code though -- it belongs to Apple, and there are no two ways around that. They can sue, not unlike the RIAA, anybody who is using their ROM (and MacOS I believe becau...

It has to do with the license for the ROM. Apple hasn't licensed it to you, it is their IP. Therefore, it is illegal under any copyright jurisdiction that recognizes the US's copyright claims (many countries do).

It's a legend. There's too much assembler code in OS X to cross-compile the OS to IA32 or x86-64. Not to mention Apple would not sit on it for years if they put all that effort into a port. Rather, they would sell it. Oh, and to correct my above post, IA64 is a trainwreck. My personal interest is in...
