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."

"It will *NEVER* become mainstream, you fools. It will never become mainstream because it will always be a half-assed, half-working hack, it will never be 100% stable, and it will never be as simple as popping in a DVD and installing OS X on your little self-built box."

Actually, this kind of reminds me of Windows and you have to call it mainstream...

(Sorry for going OT, I just couldn't resist this. :-))
