Never heard about it, but from the comments I would think its dead in the water for more than a decade.

What makes you think it's not intended for home users? The whole development build is merely an 800Kb bootable image. It's easily installed on any PC and hardware support is improving all the time.

What does work well is X86/X64 OSX/macOS on common PC hardware, given the components are recognized by the OS and/or patched at boot time by Chameleon or Clover.
Though technically possible, such procedure is violating the Apple EULA.
Just to name one, Nowcoms Mod and a Snow Leopard retail DVD were quite popular ten years ago.

Wasn´t the D620 a widescreen model already? The laptop in the video is 4:3 methinks.
Not that it would matter much, its likely some old Intel rig, GMA 900 or GMA 950 at best.
Its not very likely that anybody would develop anything for hardware that old, as of today.

just contacted him on his github to see if he can not upload a copy of the software he made
