    I believe it has:
    Intel Pentium Dual Core T2390

    then you can forget Lion, as it needs minimum Core 2 processor

    Sebus...man...I saw that with my Intel celeron CPU i can forget about Lion....That CPU does not support VT-X so seems I cannot install Lion in virtual machines also....I have a question...if you know is that possible to install Lion without VT-X?:worthy:

    OS X Lion Minimum Requirements

    Intel Core 2 Duo processor or better: Lion is a 64-bit OS. Unlike Snow Leopard, which could run on the very first Intel processors that Apple used - the Intel Core Duo in the 2006 iMac, and the Intel Core Solo and Core Duo in the Mac mini - the Lion OS won't support 32-bit Intel processors.

    Running Lion on hardware has NOTHING to do with VT!

    No matter what, just get it, it is NOT Core 2 Duo/Quad

    It will never run vanilla kernel

    Maybe some hacked one... (if anybody bothers)

    yes, right, but since I have my GTX570 phantom it's not possible to boot to the commandline / single-user mode cause I have no display while the kexts initialize.
    so, IF a bug happens I'm not able to repair the system for the moment, maybe the chameleon developers are able to fix it soon.
    PS: I love my mac : ) btw bought it in appstore as a download, modified & upgraded from snowleopard

    I was told that those are also illegal but you have to be REALLY computer savvy to pull it off. It would be really cool to accomplish it if it were indeed legal and easier to put together.

    Yes, and i'm enjoying it. It's a OSX 10.7.3 by Niresh. Gigabit Lan and VIA audio is not supported. I used wifi card to connect to my network and downloaded the appropriate ketxs for my audio and lan. Now everything is working perfectly well.
    :D

    The OS itself does NOT make a bit of difference

    It can be OSA or OSB or OSC

    Only applications matter to end user

    Yes, it ended in miserable failure.

    Debian? That's a fine jest.

    Ubuntu? When it can do everything out-of-the-box (multimedia and drivers) and supports serious .NET development, then I might consider Ubuntu.

    Linux is perfectly usable? Needing to pull out the Terminal every now and then (and if something randomly breaks, worse yet) is not my idea of usable.

    Best advice I've read on this thread.
