Here's a rumor I've heard going around, but can't confirm anywhere: because a hackintosh is a violation of the mac OS EULA, Apple will shut down an OS if they catch it running on a non-Apple computer.
I'm a little skeptical about that, since:
1) You register you computer when you install your OS, so Apple must have your information from the start and would shut it down then and there if they were able to.
2) I've never heard anyone say that it actually happened to them, which makes the claim sound more like an urban legend than anything else.
3) Can they even do that??
But I don't know all that much about computer, so I figured I'd see if anyone here has some insight. I would like to get it straightened out before I go investing in a new computer. Thoughts?
