Mac OS X It seems like flee-in-Apple's-fur, cracker 'Maxxuss', has succeeded in cracking Mac OS 10.4.4 for Intel. "We were just about to hunker down and wait through the cold winter and a wet spring until we saw some results on the OS X 10.4.4 for Intel hacking efforts, but it looks like we're getting a little Valentines present from 'Maxxuss' who has already broken through Apple's heightened security that is present in their shipping version of the OS. It's just a preliminary release, not all hardware is supported and it requires a bit of futzing around to get it to work, but seeing as we weren't expecting this kind of breakthrough this early, we really can't complain."

When will you people realise that getting XP running on Macs will be the number 1 biggest thing to drive new people to OSX.

You don't pay a huge amount for a Macbook and then only run Windows. You buy it because you want OSX, you want iLife, you want the better computing experience, but you don't want to go cold turkey without your legacy apps and games.
