I don't think that Apple is trying to get Mac OS X on the iPad, seeing as they are trying to get iOS running on x86-64 platforms.

Steve Jobs was brought back to Apple because system 8-9 was always going to be a dead end.
For whatever reason Apple couldn't come up with a modern multitasking, memory protected OS.
They were looking to acquire Be, and it turned out that the NeXT OS was better by far... (next had already transitioned from PPC and Motorola DSP to Intel in it's short life)

Nextstep OS and dev environment were the tools that Tim berners-lee used to write the 1st web server and web browser. The oop dev system of the NeXT was said to have cut out months to years off the development time of this rather useful project.

A MacBook Air with an ARM CPU would most likely be running iOS with an OS X-like graphical shell or a redesigned version of iOS. There would be no recoding of x86 code.

I do know that Xcode comes with an iOS emulator. But wouldn't that help to prove my point of Apple running iOS on x86?

The effort you are going to put into trying to make this work vastly outweighs the investment of just buying a MBP..

Thread Starter 
Its been a while since I have looked into this thread. We ended up deciding on running hack-n-tosh on Asus netbooks, instead.

And, to respond to someone who asked; our work is classified, but I can say this system isn't for sale or retail. It is strictly for in-house use. Therefore, we don't see any harm in working around Apple's ridiculous constrictions.

You are pirating os x and its for a job? You can somehow justify it as apple has ridiculous restrictions?

This is no better than pirating adobe photoshop to run your design studio.

Actually hackintosh is 100% legal as long as you buy a legit retail disc. You just jumped to piracy...

A little presumptuous on your part, no?

 

It's not piracy if you buy a retail copy of OS X on DVD and use that for the Hack. Sure it breaks the EULA, but who cares about EULAs, they mean nothing.

OCN at times reminds me of those druggies who repeat stuff with zero factual basis. "if hes a cop you just have to ask "are you a cop" cause cops can't lie.

Do you get to buy one copy of windows and put it on 18 machines? no because its against the EULA.

If you don't want to call breaking the EULA piracy fine... Apple provides a inexpensive $29 OS upgrade because it is subisidized with sales of hardware.There's no reason to think that http://images.apple.com/legal/sla/docs/macosx107.pdf is not a legal and binding document here in the US.

I've made a hackintosh, but I don't try to fool myself and others that its not breaking these clear terms.

you are granted a limited, non-exclusive license to install, use and run
one (1) copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-branded computer at any one time


While I personally think that piracy on a individual level can be no big deal, I find it pretty despicable when done by businesses. If you can't afford mac hardware to run mac software then run linux or windows or make more money.
