anybody that has hacked their iPhone to allow them to use a chosen network will own an inoperable phone if they install the update (i think - that's how i picked it up anyway)

nope, they are different hardware from PC's, although that gap is now starting to close since they started using x86 varient based CPU's last year instead of RISC CPU's.

They run MacOS, the current series being MacOS X or better know nowadays as simply OSX. I think the latest release is Tiger (aka MacOS 10.4), but Leopard is out soon to replace it (aka MacOS 10.5).

Its a lovely OS is OSX, although MacOS 9 and earlier were good, OSX has made inroads on the dominence of Microsoft Windows, and is more secure, more reliable and more efficient, although obviously it also has drawbacks, the main being lack of software availablility, which has gotten better over recent years.

You can actually get Windows XP to run on a mac (provided its an intel processor), but I wouldnt recommend it no

Obviously, anything can be done lol. But you just wouldnt want to.

You can run MacOS on an x86, even MacOS 9 can be run on it, but again, you wouldnt want to lol.
