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

So was Win 9x, but look where that got Microsoft? Don't underestimate the general public's capacity for broken software.

*sigh*

Windows 9x and hacked OS X on x86 whitebox hardware are so far from being parallels that if they were any farther away, they'd be getting closer. :-)
