macOS is basically an OS designed to work for Macs, but there are multiple ways to install it on PCs other than Macs, which are called ' Hackintosh '.

As the latest example of such Hackintosh, Reddit user Lampa183 has succeeded in running macOS Catalina 10.15.3 on Steam Deck. According to this user, it was possible to run macOS only on VirtualBox , a virtualization software package.

Lampa183 has released only a picture of macOS running on the Steam Deck, and there is no video showing the operation. Lampa183 says, ``Performance is normal,'' but some animations are slow and it takes about 2 to 4 minutes to boot macOS. Regarding the reason why the animation is delayed, 9to5Mac said, ``Probably because the graphics accelerator does not work on macOS on virtualization software.You can still run Apple's macOS on a portable PC like Steam Deck. It is a very interesting place, ”he wrote.

Below is a screen that confirms the specifications of the terminal from 'About this Mac' of macOS, the operating frequency of the processor is 2.8 GHz, and the memory is 8 GB 1600 MHz DRAM.
