    This cannot be discussed in these forums as it is against the rules...

    I dont wanna do this. But I just wonder is this be possible?
    Since apple is earning money thru hardware, not software.
    If pc can use mac os, then there will be lesser people buying mac hardware.
    That seems to be a really bad news for apple.

    a question of drivers

    Apple writes drivers for its software; Apple is not going to care about supporting PCs. I don't think it hurts Apple if PCs start running its OS in the short run. I wonder if this prospect scares MS any.

    It's doubtful. This is an unsupported hack that only a handful of people even bother with.

    Apple is preventing people by putting Leopard on non-apple hardware, merely by limiting that use in the EULA. There are also technological means that need to be bypassed/disabled for this to work. Depending on where you live, bypassing these means could be illegal.

    Proceed at your own risk. YMMV. etc....
