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.

I don't get it Thom. Do you think your little box is special? People have been building hackintosh computers for quite some time now and haven't been sued by Apple.

Apple has gone after a business, not individual persons. That distinction is lost on you.

If Thom can legally do it, so can Psystar. Neither the EULA nor the law makes any distinction.

What mom and pop hackintosh builders has Apple sued other than Psystar?

Guys like Thom building their own hackintosh aren't going to cut into Apple's margins. Psystar, however, very well could (though likely not in this specific case, but Apple has to protect their IP and business model and Psystar put a big bulls-eye on their business). There is a big difference.
