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."

Why not make Intel OSX available boxed for $50 with the disclaimer that there is no official support for it if you don't run it on their hardware? I for one would buy it, and Apple would be $50 richer than they otherwise would've been, and they wouldn't even have to offer support to me ... hell, that's like free money ;)
