I know this would be better in the "Contest" forum, but, that one seems to be a little... err, empty. More people will see it here. 8)

I have a set of screenshots. You are to guess the Operating System, but don't think I made it easy. The winner gets 100 Bits. Shocked Wink

Is it a [b]real[b] mac with some foolies to make you think it's windows?
Is it linux w/ KDE tweaked out to look like a Mac showing a Windows partition to make you think it's Windows?
Is it windows disguised as a Mac?
Is it GNOME doing the same thing as above?
Is it Enlightenment doing the same?
Is it PearPC running fullscreen?
ect...

It's up to you to decide, but NAME THAT OS!

I wont say if you're right or wrong.

On Friday, I'll award the first person to get it right the hundred bits, and anyone thereafter to get it right, 5 complementary bits.

C'mon kids, two entries? It doesn't take long to guess, even if you don't look at the pics, just randomly guess. Wink

PearPC is portable to all operating systems. Even Mac OS X. Razz

BTW: There are no screenshots inside screenshots in here. What you're seeing is the actual OS, whatever that may be.

wtf are you smokin'?

PearPC is an emulator. It emulates a PowerPC architecture on your x86 machine. You actually do install OS X on a Virtual hard drive you create on the computer. Confused
