Alas, running OS X on a PC is very difficult, and, believe it or not, illegal (at least, if you believe Apple). Apple is very restrictive about the hardware on which their OS runs. It has to be a Mac. They are almost as restrictive about which software runs on their ipod.

It’s not that I like Microsoft either ...


I would run OS X on a Virtual Machine, because there are two or three applications that I would run: Scrivener, Mellel (which is an excellent word processor for academic writing), and perhaps one of the Outliners. I acquired a Mac (through the university) to try out all the stuff. Yet, I found DevonThink rather disappointing. that was the program I had really had lusted after, based on all the good press. It turned to be more hype than reality. The same thing held for Voodoopad.

I ultimately returned because ConnectedText and AutoHotkey are the applications that I use most.
