    There isn't a lot of evidence to support the screenshot and information i'm affraid. Nevertheless, this isn't anything we should worry about. There may be a few hundred people running this, but Apple will make it hard enough to keep it from mainstream distribution...unless the yellow box rumors are true of course!

    Where do you have any proof that this is real? The machine in the screenshot even has GMA 950. Please, this is some serious bull.

    I looked at the screenshot.. I decided that it looks like either someone managed to hack Leopard onto a notebook that's nearly identical to a MacBook (maybe one of the super-secret AMD powered MacBooks:p ) or it's just a photoshop. I dunno, don't really care though.

    OS X is for a Mac, all other OS's are for the Pee-Cee.

    I hope it's real.Wanna know why?

    Apple is very smart..

    They have like 25 different dmg's of Leopard for download.Depending on when a developer logs in.

    Each one has a unique unknown feature in it.


    Think about that,Seriously...;)

    If you think I'm blowing bull go ahead and install it on a PC :D

    Plenty of 'off the shelf' Intel 'PC' motherboards have integrated GMA950.

    In fact, one of the ways these 'hackers' have been so successful in building 'hackintoshes' is by building generic PC systems that closely match the chipsets and specs of current MacTel machines.

    MacTel machines aren't some ground breaking, Mac only or specially designed stuff just for Apple. It's stuff thats readily available to PC builders.

    All they really have to 'crack' is the OS looking for a specific 'key' that identifies the hardware as genuine Apple hardware.. after that, so long as the PCs chipsets (video, audio, networking, controllers, etc) are similar to a MacTel that OSX supports, then it's smooth sailing.

    I mean with different features AND Hash codes..

    trust me I know..
    It's Apple's way of flushing out the leakers.
