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."

Yes, the are. You get two agreements here not one. Resale and EULA.

There are a lot of places where EULA does not mean jack, since it's not a copyright license. And where resale is legal.

As for "upgrade" as they mark it, they can write whatever they please. In installs as a full-functional OS, so it isn't an upgrade.

I'm not sure if I would ever want to run OS X on non-Apple hardware, but I don't see anything bad or even (generally) unlawful in these actions.
