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."

If they are selling the strawberries for a fraction of the actual cost, and as a top up to the main course which is the sweet cream pie, then its their ethical right to do that.

Ethical right? What's that? I think you're the one mixing up legality and ethics here...

Is it your opinion that OS X is being sold at a fraction of its actual production cost? In that case, wouldn't pirating it be doing Apple a favor? :-)
