If they want to find out how popular Atom hackintoshes are, I'd think the easiest way is to look at the logs for apple.com and see how many have an OSX browser string with a 1024x600 screen resolution.

Thanks guys. Very insightful. I imagine the 1.6 GHz Atom is similar to the Core Solos (1.5 and 1.66 GHz) that were in the early Mac Minis.
I'm sure glad it works though. My mini is my main computer right now. My first gen MacBook Pro gave up the ghost a couple nights ago, so I'm getting by on this guy until I can talk the rents into buying me one of those new iMacs for X-mas/b-day. =D

What I've always found most interesting is how WELL OSX runs on the Atom, not that it runs on it.. If you ran Linux on the Mini9 back when it first came out, around this time last year, it was SLOW.. Definitely not as fast as OSX. Not sure if it's improved since then. But anyways.. I imagine the reason OSX runs so well on the Atom is because of Intel. I bet Intel provided Apple with their own custom compilers to compile the operating system and all it's components with so that Apple could maximize the performance of their OS on the new Intel chips. These compilers would obviously be optimized to run well on ALL Intel chips, even the Atom.. But that's just a hunch.. For all I know, they're just using GCC like XCode does..
