    I know how to develop in PHP, Java, Python, I really want to try the iPhone SDK, unfortunately after registering as a developer, I discovered - "WHAT? YOU HAVE TO HAVE MAC OS TO RUN THE SDK????!?!?!?!?" Yes, so are they ever going to make it for Windows? Cuz not everyone has a Mac. Plus, Apple could get a lot more developers.

    Mac OS X only, and will likely never migrate from this platform.
    You've got 3 options:

    • Buy a Mac
    • VMware OS X
    • Use the unofficial toolchain

    My brother is currently dualbooting his dell computer too so he can use the SDK.

    What is the unofficial toolchain?

    Right... All that trouble just to run the SDK, it just has to be like that... *sigh
    I'll see if I can get my hands on a spare PC. My PC now is too slow to dual-boot. Lol, the EULA states that you cannot install Mac OSX on a non-apple labeled computer, well, my friend found an Apple sticker and put it on his computer

    Mine was actually really compatible and easy to install. All the drivers except for sound worked already. Even had wireless right after installing.

    Mine was also to slow to dual boot so I got an old laptop my dad had laying around, and it has to stay plugged into the wall as of no battery and he gave a an old 250 drive i got connected through usb.

    lol 6th or 7th time?


    I recommend dual booting as for me I've tried all methods and it seems the most efficient and easiest. Vmaware is slow as hell..

    Yeah, 6 or 7th time, and I'm going to keep saying it. That is how you build the toolchain on Windows or Linux.
