Wired News: Mac Hacks Allow OS X on PCs

Mark Baard, reporting for Wired News:

Imagine if your next Mac cost you only $300, and ran faster than any G4 or G5 you’ve ever used.

It is entirely possible that cracked versions of Mac OS X are running on PC hardware; and it is definitely possible that when running on a top-of-the-line PC, it’s faster than on “any G4 or G5 you’ve ever used”. But the idea that Mac OS X is faster on a $300 PC than on a dual G5 PowerMac is absurd. This lead is just a shameless bit of sensationalism.
