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."

of pathetic on Don't know if it is only me but, those people there were sure let down when brains were distributed.

If Maxxuss would do a little of real work (earning instead of hacking), he could easily buy him self a Mac if he wants OSX so badly. And so could all others... ????... no, they couldn't, at least based on stupidity of their comments my deduction is that they aren't equiped with brains.

Apple wantd to have its OS on its own hardware (it is easier, cheaper, better to do it like this). As soon as OS /*bound to specific vendor like OSX*/ oversteps from controlled to uncontrolled variety of hardware, his quality in public talks drops because soon more and more people talks about "How to solve this! This doesn't work! This crashes! You can't!" The last thing Apple wants is bad PR like this.

If you want OSX, at least show appreciation to the vendor for his work and buy his box. Not that I'm Apple fan, in fact I hate Apple. But still... enforcing something where it isn't supposed to be? What is next, people forcing their cars to start flying for sole airplane envy?

??? Maybe I'm just to old to understand this.
