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."

The plot thickens. Come on.. everyone knows that Maxxus is an apple employee teasing the X86 users. You just get the taste of it but never the real thing (stability simplicity).

If Maxxus is a real person, just a student out there, with a lot of time, he certainly does a great job at what he does. Apple should definitely hire him (if that's not already the case that is).
