Mac OS X hacker returns

Recent reports that Apple took legal action against a hacker--who has been aiming to make Mac OS X work on generic Intel-based PCs--are apparently misplaced. The OSx86 project yesterday speculated that Apple may have taken action against Maxxuss, the named hacker whose posts and downloads drew Apple's attention which resulted in legal action against the OSx86 project. The hacker's own website then disappeared, resulting in speculation that Apple had take action against the hacker for posting patches and instructions to run Mac OS X on non-Apple machines. This morning, however, Maxxuss launched a new website and blog designed to share his findings with others who wish to run Mac software on standard (i.e., generic) PC's, according to a report from Macworld UK. The OSx86 project closed down its forums on Friday following a cease and desist order from Apple, but returned after removing the links that Apple claimed violated the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act).

    How about a link? Macnn seems to have a link deficiency lately.
