Does it work? Viable? Something non geeks can actually make use of?
If you've got an afternoon to kill, it can be loads of fun.
I still haven't found the perfect comination for stability, at least with a laptop.
From reading the wiki, I gather they're not the target audience?
any help appreciated.
Maybe the standard hardware in 5 years will do it, but not now.
Pffft - that only worked pre OS X. What would make their heads explode is finding a good reason for them to do it (meaning, I used to dual-boot my system between OS 9 and Linux prior to OS X coming out, but don't have a good reason to do that anymore).

It's more fun to go the other way around: buy Apple hardware and run a non-Apple operating system on it. Fastest possible way to make Apple fanboys' heads explode.

I disagree. Eschewing OS X makes their heads explode even more because they believe that OS X is so superior to Linux in every way that there's no reason you wouldn't want to use it.
So today I wanted to get a few songs very very quickly (on a hunch)
Bought them from iTunes store.
Then I obtained Requiem 1.7.3 in order to decrypt them. With a simple drag-and-drop I got an unprotected m4a file for each song.
Now said songs are playing in VLC :)
Not as good as the original CD but now as free as one...
Do they make external dvd burners for mac?
What software can I get, does itunes burn dvds?
iTunes burns CD's. But the software you'd probably want is Toast Titanium.
