Intel Atom chip again supported in latest 10.6.2 developer build
It’s baaaaaack! Like a relentless zombie in a bad horror flick that just can’t be killed, the Intel Atom chip is now supported again in the latest developer build of 10.6.2, 10C53. This doesn’t mean much since it’s just a developer build, but for now Hackintosh Netbook users can feel a bit better about their uncertain future. StellaRolla reports:
…the latest development build Atom appears to have resurrected itself zombie style in 10C535. The Atom lives another day, but nothing is concrete until the final version of 10.6.2 is out.
So that’s all fine and dandy, but will the Atom truly survive? Time will tell.
Thank you to OS X Daily reader Tony for notifying us of this change!
