OS X on the Eee PC: What's the Point?

A few weeks ago, news broke out about someone who successfully installed OS X on the Eee PC.  The guy was able to install OS X Leopard to the Eee but there was a lot of skepticality on its usability.  As a Mac user, I researched on this and see if it is indeed viable to run my favorite OS on my soon-to-be-favorite laptop and during the course of my research, I stumbled upon this wiki: How to Install OS X Tiger on the Eee PC.

The process is pretty straightforward, if not a bit dubious (considering the legality of the activity).  After reading the rather long procedure, in the end, the wiki states:

WiFi, audio, webcam and microphone are confirmed not working initially. There is no published fix yet, but we are working to get these working as quickly as possible.

So, what's the point?

I personally would rather have a fully-functional Linux-based machine than a partially-functional computer.

The point is, until people install it, who's going to fix it?
