    Installing mac osx on other company computers
    Hi everyone,
    I am Prateek. I would like to know that "Can we install mac osx on laptops of other companies such as acer, hcl, hp etc.?" I own an acer laptop and currently i m running windows vista. I want to practice iPhone application development and currently i hv not got enough money to buy a mac. i hv heard many people say that we can install or simulate mac osx on computers other than mac and rest deny this. That's why I m confused.
    Please guide...

    It is against the Apple EULA to install OS X on anything other than an Apple computer. In order for it to be done, OS X must be cracked which has been shown in U.S. courts to be against the law.

    This site abides by U.S. law and any discussion of this is not allowed here.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
