I haven't really been active on the scene for a few years now but I recently had to install OSx86 on my computer again because I needed it for recording/music production. Looking through the forums I still found tons of reference to using OSx86Tools, which has long been outdated, and basically the only functions on it that are still usable are the kext installation and the EFI string generation.

Windows 2000 (Feb 2000) / Re: win2k - best windows version ever?
« Last post by dawful on December 13, 2023, 11:32:05 PM »
Best version was nt 3.5. Kind of most stable. But i agree that xp was worse than 2000. Anyway all of them were crappy as they did not have realtime kernel.

Realtime kernels can be problematic. Especially if there are background processes you don't know about. So I have to agree, that NT3.5 (and 4) where pretty good. They had less processes, that you didn't have control over. It is one of the things that makes me appreciate Win9x and Dos. In this view, 2K was mostly better then XP. But there are other trade offs. 

I like a lean and well tightened up system. Even with the shortcomings, of every system I've ever used, music was still made. Work with what you've got, until what you've got won't work. Then hack (technical not violent meaning) it to death (ditto).

There is, no doubt, advantages to a realtime kernel. But a lot of people will do okay, with out it. Avoid USB audio devices, if you can. That will reduce your CPU load and inherent USB latency. PCI/PCMCIA/Etc will almost always be lower in latency and Resources (depending on vendor drivers). For midi, serial and parallel interfaced usually do better then USB; but don't compete with internal cards. And for god sake, get rid of those antivirus programs. Disconnect from the Internet and kill all the services you can. If you aren't even on a network, kill those workstation/client services too.

Okay, maybe I'm being too extreme (unless you are a masochist, like me).

 This article explains how to use an old iMac made between late 2009 and 2013 as a display for another Apple device. If you have an old iMac with Target Display Mode, your Mac mini or another Mac can make use of your old 27-inch iMac as a display.

The 27-inch iMacs introduced in late 2009 included the first version of Target Display Mode, a feature that allowed iMacs to be used as displays for other Apple devices. However, by the time Apple released the 2014-2015 Retina Display iMacs, they no longer supported the feature.

Use your iMac as a display with target display mode
Target display mode is a feature available with certain older Mac models.
