We can have a thread where we're talking about the fact that we don't talk about Hackintoshes. It's the next-best thing. ;)

Well it is legal to run Windows on a Mac subject of course to the proper purchase being made. It is never legal to install Mac OS X on a Windows machine.

And now that we've explained exactly WHY its illegal, we should probably close the thread.

But that would spoil the fun of talking about the policy of not talking about the topic.

Rule number one of Mac-Forums: You don't talk about hackintoshes.

(Okay, that was a bad play on the Fight Club rule).
