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.

You're right about that being the big question. Remember, though, that this whole brouhaha started when someone claimed that Apple was including DRM on their x86 *developer boxes*. If that claim is discredited, there's no evidence to suggest that Apple is considering Trusted Computing at all.

I'm not, really, the one who could confirm that... I DO remember some posts about DRM and MacIntel, but it spreaded so fast that I can't remember the (real) original news source... The others are always interpreting, adding, subtracting... well, changing the information somehow... It's so easy someone anything post about possible DRMed MacIntels and someone else post how it has "discovered" that the developer boxes has DRM from a "misterious" news source... =]
...These days you can't really trust (cof) everything you read in internet... :rolleyes:

...But in the end... what really matters is, "OSX_x86 running on VMWare's nice". =] (well... if it's not a fake... =[ )

Bonus about the subject:(Eugenia pointed the story, the fist comment is really nice!)
