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."

pshaw! Apple have made too much money selling hyped up products. As for Maxxuss breaking things for others, I think he just made available a hardware and vendor locked os for the masses, so Apple executives will have to wear silver cufflinks with their hand spun silk shirts now instead of their golden ones... boo hoo
