    Got my new built in computer finished today along with all the shelving.
    half depth 3U rack mount server case. Linux installed and using KVM virtualisation to run windows 7 at the SAME time.

    The new shelving had to be made to fit in the new sound system as unlike my laptop it hasn't got built in speakers :Doh:

    I am ordering a copy of OS/X next week and running that in another KVM instance.

    Had to play with a few different linux distributions over the last day or two to find which one I want for my desktop. I haven't looked at desktop linux in a while so it was interesting to see how it has developed. I settled on Linux Mint XFCE edition. Made a few mods to the desktop and its running really nice..

    Just waiting for the Varnish to dry on the new shelves so I can get them installed. Really really pleased with it so far.:thumb:

    Not just a hackintosh but a virtual hackintosh:Laughing: Will be running it using KVM under linux. Just playing with windows 7 under it at the moment. Full screen at 1920 x 1080 on my second desktop. It runs faster virtual on this than it did on my laptop:Doh:

    I think you may want to have a play when I finally get over to wales:thumb:

    That's tomorrow, and if you know where I can buy one cheap let me know:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
