Mac OS X This could be completely faked, but engadget has a screenshot of OSX x68 running on the x86 virtual machine VMWare. It's an interesting feat if its true, but it also has other implications. Since VMWare obviously does not implement any of the various DRM schemes, this would poke holes in the assertion that Apple is using Trusted Computing in its developer boxes.

Has anyone considered the possibility that this is some smart guy who is making smart use of his transition kit? I don't know how flexible VMWare is, but shouldn't you be able to tell VMWare to use *some* hardware direclty from the host PC, instead of letting VMw emulating it? And that via trial and error, he was able to activate the DRM chip in the trans. kit?

I no fcuk-all about emulation, so I have no idea if this makes any sense.

Another possibility is some kid having a go at hacking PearPC code.
