    If I had a MacBook Pro, how would I get Mac OS on my other laptop?

    I think, don't quote me on this, is that you can create a bootable USB with the macbook pro, and then load it on the hackintosh, however, if you do not have the macbook, it's hard to find a copy of the OS.

    Support for all Mac OS apps. Stuff like handoff and sidecar. Does it also get updates like a Mac? Does it have any bugs that don't occur on a Mac?

    NO, NO NO, and yes. I think hackintosh is silly too. Why mess around with that, just buy a mac. Then, in the same token, why buy a mac? Just buy another windows based system and have a more powerful, cheaper, better OS'ed laptop.

    MacOS no longer has the big selling point it used to have in large part to Windows being a much better today. Windows is now just as stable and reliable as MacOS. Linux has also come a long way to allow PC noobs to install and use it. Linux is just as if not more secure than MacOS and Windows has also come a long way in improving and tightening it's vulnerabilities.

    For me, I can't live without my Windows Live Tiles and I rarely use MacOS anymore. I've also noticed that it takes more resources and power to efficiently run MacOS whereas it takes less hardware requirements to run Windows 10.

    My 2012 Mac Mini with 8GB of ram is slow as a fat pig running High Sierra and Mojave made it even worse. I can run Windows 10 quite nicely on a 2009 Dell laptop with aged hardware and 4GB of ram.

    You can use applications and such like a normal Mac AFAIK. I would look into dedicated threads on it though as you'll find more info.
