Oh No! They Installed MacOS 8 on My Windows Box

Found an interesting link today. Until I clicked on it...

www.yaromat.com/macos8/

Suddenly, my Internet Explorer window is filled with running text telling me that "macsetup" has been downloaded, windows files removed from my hard drive, and the computer is rebooting for a change... A few seconds later, my screen comes up with the blue-smiley-face logo with a booting progress bar. Then a desktop with purple background, a few icons, a white menu bar at the top of the screen, and a little apple logo with colourful strips. Apple, colourful strips, ... Aaarrgghhh! It is an MAC! Clicking on that apple logo reveals a dialog box saying "Mac OS computer" with MacOS 8.1. What have they done to my Windoze 2000!

Well, not really. Then I realised that it is just a DHTML web page that simulates MacOS 8.1 interface, and it is actually quite usable. It comes with a trash can (with Windows in the bin), a working memory game, drag'n'dropable icons, etc. Very interesting and very well done.

Actually, I don't mind if they can really transform my Windows notebook PC to run MacOSX :)
