Latest version of OSx86 installable on PCs

Apple put additional security in to the latest version of OS X for Intel.  And someone has already broken that and come up with a patch allowing for an installable version.  This is the challenge of securing a digital product.  With the Internet, only one person has to break the security to make a digital product available to everyone.

What this means is that Apple’s best attempts to secure their OS have, ultimately, failed. For its best efforts, the company is unable to lock OS X to their hardware.  Without doubt, this will have profound impacts on the company’s future as running OSx86 on a PC becomes less a hacker’s trick and more mainstream.  When all it requires is the downloading of a DVD, that’s certainly the future we’re looking at.
