    Ok, so who changed out their original OS?

    Who's put a MAC OS on a PC? Who's put a Windows OS on a MAC? Who's put a Droid on a Phone that came with WIN MO and vice versa.

    On a serious note who's got rid of Wim Mo 6.5 and put Droid 2.2? Any issues I need to be aware of before making the change?

    I've put both Red Hat and Ubuntu on multiple machines replacing Windows OS's. That was quite a few years ago.

    Linux Mint CD Live instead of Vista which has a nasty virus napping on it. I've been too busy/ lazy to fix it that plus HP didn't give the OS disc for this thing just a piece of paper saying you can recover without a disc.

    Have replaced Windows many times with different flavors of Linux.

    Finally settled on Ubuntu for home use and SUSE for an office machine.

    To put OS X on a PC, search for Hackintosh.

    Tons of step-by-step instructions on how to do it, but be aware they are hardware specific.
