    Already posted on MacBytes. Very interesting story, though maybe too conspiratorial.

    Can anyone confirm if that works? I don't have a Wintel PC, so I can't try it. Just curious.

    Very interesting article. If that's what Apple had in mind, they are actually genious (not that I didn't already know that). They are very very good at what they do :)

    My first guess would be yes since it's just an x86 chip and I would also think Apple would have been running OS X on AMD as well as Intel chips for the past 5 years just incase AMD was a choice.

    Heh. Would be fun to have it running on both my PC and my Mac! XD Then I'd only boot into XP when I damn well had to.

    Interesting Article indeed

    Its common sense really that when your showing off something like this that it will find its way on P2P, if Apple are as clever as we think then this was the secret plan all along

    The word here is of course genious :)

    id consider looking for it but my connection is so busy today. whole family must be online or something and im slightly curious to what specs your computer will need.

    my PC is a 2Ghz P4, 512Mb ram, intel video card (my 9800pro stopped working recently :(). its a fair machine but i doubt it'd run the pirate version of Tiger.

    I found a copy of it.

    :p

    Not telling where though. I'm gonna give it a run and see if it will run on AMD, so everyone can know. :D

    Once I test it out, I'm probably gonna delete it.

    So this is the version of tiger that runs on the developer intel boxes right?
    My guess is that it will ONLY work on these boxes and not on your common variety PC. Why would it be any other way?

    If it's the one that originated from a certain Swedish site, it's already been confirmed that it's fake. Save the GB in bandwidth...

    Smart move by Apple is true.

    I am certain this version of OS X expires at some date. Jobs said the development machines are due back at the end of next year. That's probably when this version of OS X expires.

    Free marketing for Apple. No lost sales.

    Brilliant.

    I got one from xISO that said this in the NFO file :

    For all you eager guys out there waiting to get your hands on the
    mac os x. There have been rumors about it getting released on silly
    p2p and newsgroups, but it's completely fake. We are proud to bring
    Mac OS X for the x86 processor, pre retail. Yes, you heard right.
    Pre Retail. This comes fully cracked and all you need to do is just
    unrar and burn with your favorite software. We hope to bring you guys
    more stuff in the near future and thanks for the support from
    everyone.

    I dunno what fully cracked means though. xx.

    Guess we'll just have to wait and see eh?

    I think its a good move by Apple if they were to do this. Have it expire in a year, and give everyone a feel. Actually, if you ask me, they outta put up some kind of trial for it on x86 for like 90 days or so. They'd probably generate a lot of sales doing that.

    thats the fake one that is floating around, and being quickly deleted.

    this is what the inside of the rar files look like (picture taken from here )

    so its just a fake either released by Apple, or some person who wanted to screw with everyones head.

    It's fake.

    I noticed it was fake when I right-clicked the directory and it said "Size on Disk : 200 MB" and then said "size : 560kb"

    It runs the WINdows OS using an INTEL microprocessor in a Personal Ccomputer.

    GNAA? Hmm... sounds like a Slashdot troll, not Apple.

    But with no sound, no networking, no quartz extreme, no iLife apps, no Power Management for the laptop... Great! :rolleyes:

    100% fake. The fool even rolls his mouse over the OSXvnc icon.

    This however looks much more genuine. The only thing that bugs me is that at least on my Mac, there's a momentary blank blue screen that exists between the gray startup screen and the startup progress... I also find it odd he taped it from such a distance - it could be real, but it looks like there's something he's hiding.
