Hacked version of Leopard runs on PC



The cat and mouse game between hackers and Apple takes another move, with news that Apple’s new Leopard operating system has already been successfully installed on Windows PCs. The OSx86 Scene forum has released details of how Windows users can migrate to Apple’s new OS, without investing in new hardware — even though installing Leopard on an PC may be counter to Apple’s terms and conditions. The forum is offering full instructions on how to install the system, including screenshots of the installation process.

Not all the features of Leopard function with the patch — Wi-Fi, support, for example, is reportedly inoperable. Historically, Apple’s likely next move will be to track down and act against those behind the hack. The move to make Leopard work on a PC is just the latest in Apple’s continual struggle with the hacker community. Also this weekend a crew of hackers unleased Jailbreak Me, an online service iPod touch and iPhone users can navigate to in order to break into these devices in order to install applications on them. Apple has encountered similar trials each time it releases a new version of its operating system, as PC-using hackers want the OS, but not necessarily the Mac.

im running tiger on my powerbook and macbook pro and i love it. i also installed it on my other PC but the performance blows. there are still many driver issues and on top of that its like running a beta version of tiger which was very glitchy.

spent a good portion of the day setting up my GF new MacBook Pro, installed Leopard, got it connected to my WiFi and downloaded all the updates to all her existing software, first time I actually spent a few hours playing on a Mac.

have to say I am very impressed, my next desktop is definately going to be the IMac. Leopard is so much better than Vista, and Safari blew me away at how fast it was.

the graphics & picture quality are unfookin believable :yes
