At the request of some of our users, a new design has been implemented that should be simpler to navigate and easier on the eyes. Readability has been enhanced by moving user profiles to the top of each post, allowing the post's content to stretch the entire width of the page.

If you have any additional suggestions for improving the site, please post them.

Mike, new look is really good. :) One request for an enhancement would be to allow a search to see the signatures as well as the content or maybe even as a separate search item. This would allow users to find others with like systems. Not sure if this is possible or not but it could prove useful.

Signature searching isn't possible. I may enable custom profile fields though, which are searchable, and you can use those to enter your system information.

The new style is beautiful! :)

My suggestion - this mod

http://www.vbulletin...ad.php?t=148372

for the possibility to have nested quotes. If you want to quote a user, who quotes another user, this isn´t possible with the built-in-functionality of vbulletin.

I like the new forum!

Just one request: I'd like the addition of an hardware subforum to discuss nice hardware to be used on our hackintosh

(we all like new gadget, don't we? wouldn't be nice to share experiences on what it works and what not?)

I think an area for yelling about stuff that get under your nails is in order.

1st off as I am new here so I would like to say that I find the forums well organised and intuitive.
@nd I like the overall attention to details.

Anyways...... as for ranting.

My personal rant is this......... Every piece of software for the hackintosh is freely available and often if asking nice someone will point you to a general location where you can then search further. What I hate is that here in China there must be a thousand sites where asshats are selling copies of iPC Osx86 final etc..... just pisses me off.
Downloading off P2P burning and selling for 5€ pisses me off. 5€ is not much you may think but for many Chinese its a lot of money.....
End rant:

By the way I am not Chinese but English with a Dutch passport......who just happens to live in China.

I love this place. The design and layout is great. Recently, the abundance of resources here have become more and more important to me. Thank you so much for this incredible wealth of information.

I appreciate that in the downloads sections you list compatibility with Mac OS X versions (Leopard, Snow Leopard, and Lion). However, I believe that it is a tremendous oversight to leave out Tiger compatibility. Where old machines fail to run these systems, they often run OS X 10.4.x Tiger very nicely. OS X 10.4.8 is incredibly stable. For music production, graphics, and web browsing, there is nothing at all wrong with Tiger. I run it alongside the later versions of the OS. When everything else fails, Tiger usually fills the bill. (For the interested, the 10.4.8 installer by JaS was very simple to use, and is a great starter version of OSX86). Tiger is a valid and integral part of the OSX86 experience, and kext compatibility should certainly be listed if it is known. Any thoughts?

I tried that in the past, but there was absolutely no interest whatsoever for it. Sorry.

I have nothing but good things to say about the layout and usability of your forum, but I have noticed that you don't have a section for successful member builds, where folks can present their systems in full color for everyone to enjoy. Of course it would include full system specs, OS type and the like.

Just a thought, I know it is a bit of a resource hog for hosting images, but maybe users can host their own images thus cutting down on the bandwidth use. We could have contests for the best user build of the month or whatever.

Let me know what you think,

Looks like i should have posted this here in this Sticky rather than starting a new thread. Sorry about that - please feel free to delete that thread.

Would just like to suggest a separate discussion forum section for those of us who are using VMWare (Virtual Machines) - in my case, VMWare Workstation 9.0 in Vista 64-bit.

Before I burn a DVD, I prefer to try out my OS X ISO file in a virtual machine, a) to get some of idea of if/whether it will work with my physical setup: MoBo, CPU, graphics card, etc & B) so that I know what kind of screens I can expect to see through the install process.

I've also experienced a few weirdnesses recently while trying out various Mac OS's in a VM environment and I should like to be able to discuss them with people who have a vast and superior knowledge of VMWare. I myself am only a novice as I have only been using it for a couple of weeks and there's a LOT I don't understand about it.
