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."

Maybe you can keep dreaming. :-)

We can continue dreaming when it comes to Apple opening up to that market. They're not interested in selling an operating system or "just" a computer, more of a lifestyle, eh?

It's painfully obvious however, that there is a market for people who want the cake, without it being served on a turd plate.

It's painfully obvious that various people want a *lot* of things that they can't get. Such is life.

Being spoiled is a bitch, eh?
