Mac OS X As was to be expected, Apple's legal team got busy concerning the OSx86 Project. Just days after OSX 10.4.4 for Intel got cracked, the project closed down its forum with the following notice: "We're sorry to report that despite our best efforts, the OSx86 Project has been served with a DMCA violation notice. The forum will be unavailable while we evaluate its contents to remove any violations present. We thank you for your patience in this matter."

If you are currently running OSX on non apple hardware - You have stolen from a company. There is _no_ way to deny that.

How about if I own a Mac running Debian? I hold a license of Mac OS X, why shouldn't I be able to put in use on a beige box?

Well, you can do anything you want as long as you're not caught... But on the legal aspect, it depends on your local regulations and whether the licence is tied to the machine or not.

I must say your situation would be rather unusual. Unless you have specific needs, it would be more productive to do the opposite, especially if you care of your warranty.
