Your original post:


I use a free version of the Leopard based on darwin (freebsd6) named
"hackintosh"  it is the google,
it is free, and just works...

You can even buy a "standard" notebook, and install.  I will transform
the notebook in an
apple leopard 10.

It is a DVD of 4Gb..


--- End original post ---

There is no free version of 'the Leopard', and Darwin is NOT FreeBSD.

Your offer to 'transform the notebook into an apple leopard 10' meant
what, exactly? Put GNOME on top of Darwin, and call it Mac OS Leopard?

Also, where is this 'hackintosh' distribution? The first page of
Google from searching 'hackintosh' lead to most sites referring to

This is putting aside the fact that your post was useless to anyone
wanting to read anything other than 'look at me!', and completely
irrelevant to the topic at hand. And no-one said 'pirate' in the
mailing list.
