    Looks like the Tiger has pounced and OSx86 Project is closed! (for now)

    Good riddance!

    Apple flexed a little legal muscle? That's surprising. :D

    Eh, they aren't closed. They have to remove any stuff that was deemed to be a violation, which wasn't all that much anyway.

    However, this is obviously Apple's response to 10.4.4 being hacked because they didn't expect it. However, the person who does the hacking isn't affiliated with the OSX86 site, or any site for a matter of fact.

    Apple also sent a C & D to another OS X x86 site so it's quite obvious they're not too happy.

    "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."

    Looks closed to me, who would of guessed a site about pirating Mac OS X would get Apple angry?

    NO! Not "good riddance."

    The only reason I have Desktop Manager native on my Intel iMac is because of x86 hackers. They compiled a lot of open source software in UB that isn't available offically in UB yet.
