Nic Lindh writes an entertaining and informative story about building his Hackintosh:

The complexity is also high. Remember, youโ€™re dealing with something completely unsupported that is by its very nature complicated. Youโ€™re picking parts, tweaking BIOS settings, installing strange system extensions, and groveling through more-or-less-illiterate testosterone-soaked forum discussions trying to pick up clues on how to fix something thatโ€™s not working. The learning curve is steep.

Every once in a while I think about building one of these myself, but I don’t have long weekends to go get lost in much anymore. I think I like reading about it more than I would like the never-quite-done fiddling, despite the on-paper cost savings for a high-power Mac.
