My WindOSX-periment -- 95% Functional

This is a continuation of my two previous posts.

The OSX installation on my MSI Wind was a resounding success.  I have a fairly stable system and everything seems to "just work" even if I had to jump through hoops to make them work the first time.  Here are some of the additional customizations I did on my WindOSX so far:
  • I was able to make its built in wifi adapter to work using a leaked driver that can be easily searched on the 'net.  That means I don't have to crack this baby open and replace its wifi adapter in order to have untethered access to the 'net.
  • Using a nifty little program called Audieee4Wind and CHUD, I was able to make the headphone-out of this baby work.  However, I am still searching for a way to make the microphone work.
So far, the only things *not* working under OSX the are microphone and the VGA out (fixable by applying the updated video drivers).  The webcam initially didn't work under Photobooth but it eventually did when I applied the 10.5.6 combo update.

So, what's in store for this OSX-ified MSI Wind?  I'll probably hack it until I find a way to make everything "just work" and by that time, I hope I have enough dough to buy me the real McCoy.
