Apple TV OS successfully booted on Macs

MacNN | Apple TV OS successfully booted on Macs:

MacNN is reporting this:

The customized version of Mac OS X used on the Apple TV will boot on other Macs, users have confirmed today. Taking advantage of news that the customized version of Mac OS X is portable to other hardware, one owner of the media hub has successfully used the software on an external USB drive and run the OS from a MacBook rather than the Apple TV's native components -- including authorization and streaming.


Includes a video of a MacBook apparently firing up AppleTV.

EDIT - I'm not convinced this is genuine - if you watch the video, you see a "normal" Mac bootup process - which the AppleTV DOES NOT DO. It gets all the way to the dock, and THEN we see the AppleTV interface. Perhaps he just put "launch FrontRow" in his Startup Items, and then did this.

Then I read that they had to patch the Finder to make it work - so maybe this is legit?

I'm leaning towards that possibility (legit) now - see here for details.

It's not the original AppleTV OS but a stock Mac OS X with the BackRow Framework and Finder App from the AppleTV.

Simon - I don't feel you're adding anything constructive to the conversation. It is getting to the point where your comments are not welcome here.
