Mac OS X Getting Mac OS X up and running on a computer without an Apple label has always been a bit of a hassle. You needed customised Mac OS X disks, updates would ruin all your hard work, and there was lots of fiddling with EFI and the likes. Ever since the release of boot-132, this is no longer the case. Read on for how setting up a "Hack"intosh really is as easy as 1, 3, 2.

LOL...OSNews is based in the US. I would be worried about posting such an article, I think that's crossing the line ;)

Crossing what line? It might be actionable in the US to actually break the Eula terms - that is, Apple might be able to sue you for damages and have you cease and desist. Doubtful, but it might be.

However, there is nothing illegal about publishing an article about how you broke a EULA. Under what law or contract are they going to sue you?

Not copyright by the way. US copyright law not only explicitly makes it lawful to modify a copyrighted software work in the cause of interoperability, it also makes it lawful to tell other people how it was done.

Incentive to circumvent legal-binding terms of use.

It's like those hackers that share .RAR files with a text file inside, containing a serial number to activate proprietary software, with a disclaimer: "If you like the application, please buy it", or "I'm not responsible for the use you make of this serial".

Of course this is illegal in the US.
