But you probably shouldn’t do this to yours.

Lampa183 / Reddit

A Steam Deck user has breathed new life into the term “hackintosh”. The old-school moniker indicates a non-Apple computer running a Macintosh operating system. Now, XDA Developers reports that Reddit user Lampa183 has shared how they got macOS Catalina on their Steam Deck.

The post is a simple image of macOS running on a Steam Deck with the “About This Mac” window open on an empty desktop. You can see all the pre-installed Mac apps in the dock at the bottom of the screen, indicating a very recent installation.

When asked how they accomplished this feat in the comments, Lampa813 replied, “I followed the macos (sic) install guide on YouTube.” They were also a bit reluctant to be more specific. When asked where to get the ISO, they simply replied, “Google is your friend :)”.

They were a bit more helpful when it came to explaining performance. When asked what worked and what didn’t, Lampa 813 replied: “Internet and partial touch screen. Sound, gpu (sic) and (for some reason) security settings don’t work”. And when asked about performance, they said: “Performance is ok. But some animations are slow (sic) and power up takes a while. 2 to 4 minutes.”

Lampa813 never went into detail about why they pulled off this cross-platform feat, but I think we can safely assume it’s for the same reason George Mallory climbed Mount Everest.
