Apple asks Wired to remove Hackintosh video

January 15, 2009 Leave a comment

Looks like Apple is starting to look beyond Mac clone builders using OS X. The latest news is that Wired has been asked to remove a video detailing installation of Leopard on an MSI Wind netbook. Is this the exposure level that Apple is unwilling to accept? There have been many articles published on building a hackintosh and installing OS X on non-Apple hardware, so it looks like Apple is willing to ignore the practice as long as it remains a hobbyist pursuit. Who knows, the latest move to trademark ‘OS X’ without the preceding Mac might be for a generic hardware version (yeah, and the press might give Steve Jobs some privacy).
