OWC Releases XPostFacto 2.2

Utility allows pre-G3 computers to run Mac OS X By Dave Nagel
Other World Computing has released version 2.2 of its XPostFacto utility. XPostFacto allows owners of computers unsupported by Apple to install and boot Mac OS X, including the latest version, 10.2 (Jaguar).

XPostFacto currently works with the Apple 7300, 7500, 7600, 8500, 8600, 9500 and 9600 and clones based on these systems. It also works with the Beige G3s and on the original PowerBook G3, the 2400 and the 3400. (PowerBook support is limited, however.)

Aside from new support for OS X 10.2 and support for beige G3 models, the new version adds support for UltraTek IDE cards and additional PowerComputing models; support for leaving onboard video disconnected when using a video card; and improved documentation.

XPostFacto is available as freeware with a $10 registration fee for tech support. For more information, visit
