Anyone for Pi? Mods and hacks for the Raspberry Pi

You've seen Windows 7 running on a Pi. Now here's the $40 device running Apple's OS X.

This photo shows the Mac OS X 10.3 running on PearPC, a PowerPC Mac emulator that runs on the Pi.

However this emulation is not suitable for everyday use. It took about one hour to boot and it runs about 1.2 million emulated instructions per second, according to a post by shaulkr on the Pi forums. That is roughly 50 times slower than it runs on an Intel E6300 Pentium PC.
