GS on Hackintosh

I would like to know if GS can work with a Hackintosh.

I'm planning on multibooting Windows with the Hackintosh on a touch screen all-in-one desktop. PCs have more power for the buck. (Sorry Apple, It's True)

Thanks.

    Yes... It can... BUT, while hackintosh's are good in the short term you might want to look at getting a MAC in the long term.

    I was an avid mac hater until about 6 months ago and now I love them. I started with a hackintosh but I assure everything will work better if you get the real deal as I now have a macbook pro. Worth every penny too. And honestly you can get a very powerful brand new mac mini for a comparable PC. The hackintosh is very buggy weather you will admit it or not

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    My decision: Mac Mini + Touch Screen All In One

    Will be using the All in one touchscreen as a monitor for the Mac Mini as well as for a dedicated Windows box.

    gs works on a hackintosh, but many people have reported issues with GS that can only be found on them. they work, but they are not the whole experience.
