core HP Dell et al ??????????????

Nope, because doing so would be highly illegal. Besides the little
problem that Macs use EFI while PCs use BIOS, thus your MacOS X DVD
won't boot on the PC.

OS X was written so that is NOT possible. You can install Microsoft on an
Intel Apple, but not OS X on a PC.

So is spitting on the sidewalk.

This article is more than a year old:

This is perhaps more to the point:

The hacked OSx86 bypasses a chip, the Trusted Platform Module, or TPM,
that is intended to prevent the system from running on ordinary PCs.

"We have even gone so far as to remove the TPM kernel extension called
AppleTPMACPI.kext entirely," said cmoski.

The impact of the OSx86 hack on Apple's hardware brand could be
severe.

The hack shows that Steve Jobs' company will be turning out machines
indistinguishable from any other PC, or "white box," said German
hacker Michael "mist" Steil.

"Apple wants to avoid the word getting out that (MacIntels) are just
PCs, and that (OSx86) works on PCs," said Steil.

ahahahahahaha!

That's perfect. They touched the third rail of commoditization - something
they've striven to avoid all these decades.

Sadly, nobody will actually care. It will change nothing...

In spite of the use of generic "PC" hardware, what drives many people
to the Mac is the look of the external case.

The PC market hasn't really come up with aftermarket cases that
duplicate the look of Apple hardware. What differentiates the Mac in
a lot of people's minds is that it looks different than a PC.

In some settings, a cleaner looking case can make a difference.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



what is the point ? a Dell with the same features as a Mac will cost you
more bucks. I don't see any "Apple tax" here. You should compare real
prices instead of relying on old rumors.

< http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ;

If you still want to build a "PC" to run Mac OS X, you might want to
look for an EFI motherboard (good luck with that).

Is it possible to get OSX Running in VMWare or MS Virtual PC at all? I'd
love to have a copy of OSX to play with from with in my primary os, but not
quite as hot to just run OSX as a primary OS on my PC.
