OSx86 (from OS X and x86) is a collaborative "hacking" project to run the Mac OS X computeroperating system on non-Applepersonal computers with x86 architecture and x86-64compatible processors. The effort started soon after the June 2005 Worldwide Developers Conference announcement that Apple would be transitioning its personal computers from PowerPC to Intelmicroprocessors.
A computer built to run this type of Mac OS X is also known as aHackintosh,[1] a portmanteau of the word "hack" and the name of Apple's main brand of computers, Macintosh. Hackintoshed notebook computers are also referred to as "Hackbooks".
The Apple software license does not allow Mac OS X to be used on hardware that is not "Apple-branded".[2] The legality of this form of tying is disputed by companies such as Psystar and PearC, who have attempted to release products using Mac OS on non Apple-machines. However, Apple claims the methods it uses to prevent Mac OS X from being installed on non-Apple hardware are protected by the DMCA, and in November 2009 won a summary judgement against Psystar on these grounds.[3]
