    I did a quick search but didn't find any news on this. It's somewhat of an update to the original news of OS X for x86 being leaked.

    How reliable is this?

    I hope the sucker gets caught and sued to the hilt by good ol' Steve.

    I think Apple will be glad to help them out and supply a lawyers personal request, followed quickly by a DMCA court order the second the leak hits.

    As long as the leak isn't after close of business Thursday or Friday, I'm quite sure they could have somebody delivering a faxed copy of the court order directly to his door just hours after the pirate copy shows up somewhere.

    They don't really have a source its just info from IRC. They really dont know who the person is. I bet whoever does release it will cover their ass pretty good anyways.

    I found it on Digg.com so it's made a little noise to get on there. Reliability...who knows?

    We'll see if it comes to fruition!

    That kid stands a real decent chance at getting a very painful lesson: he's just provided cover and a false lead to anyone who is thinking about leaking it.

    Never, every threaten to do something. 'Cause when somebody else does it and doesn't get caught doing it, you're the prime suspect.
