PearPC - 2 Years Old - Happy Birthday!

A few days ago, PearPC celebrated it's second birthday. I can't believe it is two years since it was taking us all like a whole day to install OSX on our PCs. In fact, I've not even used PearPC yet. I really should do. Then again, I suppose it still doesn't work very quickly on 500MHz Pentium IIIs, which is what I have. Happy birthday PearPC!
