Hey can a LCD HD44780 that is 4x20 work within MacOS X like it can with a wintel based system? I know since a mac doesn't have a paralle port and uses USB I have found guides on wiring a HD44780 for USB use. Just don't know if it can work in MacOS X.

On a few of my PCs I use this LCD for showing off my playlist in Winamp, system temp, system specs and for just maingit scroll random text. Since i'm going with a blue theme on my sawtooth I thought I would add one of theses LCDs to make the system feel more pleasing and to add more blue lighting via the blacklight that shows a blue background and white text.
Yeah, they are pretty cool. I have them working with growl to give all sorts of notifications like the current iTunes song, etc.. I am currently working on integrating one in my 5.25 inch external harddrive case (I have all laptops). I will post some pics when I am done. Anyway, if you have one with an rs232 serial board already on it, you can use a usb serial adapter and then send data to the corresponding /dev file.
