Preface: In no way do we condone or recommend trying out this hack, as it breaks the Mac OS X EULA.
Ever since Apple's transition to Intel processors, a small contingent of users has been calling for the ability to run OS X on non-Apple Intel and AMD hardware. Apple hasn't bowed to such a request just yet, and probably never will. Of course, Apple's refusal hasn't stopped some enterprising hackers from getting OS X running on non-Apple hardware, despite the fact that such use is illegal according to the EULA. Recently, hackers have taken things even further, and have been able to get Leopard running on non-Apple hardware alongside Windows Vista. It's a neat trick, but the complicated process and illegality will probably confine this hack to the most die-hard OS X-on-x86 fanatics.
