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."

Well, if you don't want to ethcally justify that, then we have nothing to talk about. My original post was about ethics, since the post I was replying to was going braveheart on us an crying FREEDOOOOM and proceed to cheat apple of money.

Apple has no power to force you to buy their wares. They don't coerce anybody to doanything. How you feel about the way they are selling their products does mean its ethical to lie to them, and thereby deciding yourself how they should run their business.
