Frankly my morals are a bit "flexible" in the area of Hackintoshes, but

I'd be far better to get my Linux box sorted out . . . as:
1. Although Macintoshes are "jolly pretty" and easy to use, I have, to
got past the stage of playing with plastic ducks in the bathtub, and the
rigidity of the
Macintosh family of operating systems does get on my nerves.
2. For about $100 I can get a Linux system that "beats the cr*p" out of
3. After the Hackintosh suggestion I spent 15 minutes looking at how to
set up a Mac system on non-Mac
hardware and I really wondered what would happen pumping diesel into my
4. The ONLY reason I reverted to Macintosh (1993-2005 Macs, 2005-2016
Linux, 2016-2018 Macs)
was that I was able to lay my sweaty paws on some rather groovy
Polycarbonate 2006 iMacs.
These iMacs are super as far as they go. But with LiveCode 9 they don't go.
There was a time when standalones for Macintosh pumped out of LiveCode
running on Linux would
not behave themselves on Macintosh: it would help me greatly if someone
could let me know if
that is still the case.
