Well....it's called 0SX86. It's dual booting with UBUNTU at the moment and it's working fine.

Nice setup! I too have an Axiom 25. It doesn't get too much use as I also have an Axiom 61 now
but there's no way in hell I'd ever get rid of my 25.  It's gonna stay on board just in case I need
to bring something on the go with me.

I also have the Korg Nano Pad and Kontrol on aboard now as well. I may just go ahead
and get the nano key while I'm at it.

How's Logic running on the netbook?

I have considered the Korg nano, but because i have very little keyboard playing experience, the Axiom 25  seemed like a better choice.

My netbook is running osx86, it's a so called hackingtosh and logic is running on it.

Hackintosh. :)

Is there only a few specific machines it'll run on? Quite tempted to try it in a Virtual Machine at work for testing purposes.

I have 3 Macs at home, but none at work. :(

It's not running as a virtual machine like the way window's is running in osx. It's a booting os. And you have to see it as a experiment cause some things won't work, or work badly. It depends on the hardware. So the real important stuff i do on my G5. And the rest is pure fun.

Indeed, i stretch myself on the couch, keyboard on my lap, computer on the back and a red wine in my left hand. And after an evening of several serious attempts of making music and the wine bottle half empty, i realize that i should have sticked with drumming.
But ohh well... it is fun indeed. :)

I think I can see where you're going wrong, Bokkie. You still have half a bottle of wine left at the end of the evening? There's your error.
