OSx86 Forums Come Back

OSx86 Forums Come Back

by , 8:50 AM EST, February 20th, 2006

The OSx86 Project forums are back online and functioning again after being temporarily shutdown last week in response to a DMCA complaint by Apple. Forum links to a Web site that listed patches for running Mac OS X 10.4 on non-Apple hardware were removed. The site managers have posted an article explaining what they did in response to Apple's requests, and also dispel the myths and incorrect information that some news organizations presented.

Last week, the OSx86 Project took its forums off line while leaving the rest of the site active to investigate Apple's allegations that certain posts were violating the copyright on Mac OS X. The action resulted in a rash of Internet news stories covering the incident, with some inaccurately claiming that Apple forced the site to shut down completely.
