OSx86 Project forums back online

The OSx86 Project's forums came back online over the holiday weekend after site administrators removed links to patches developed by a hacker named Maxxuss, according to a posting on the site.

The forums were shut down last week after the site said it had received a notice under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. At various points last week, the site contained links to Maxxuss' Web site, where PC owners could find patches allowing them to run a recent version of Mac OS on their non-Apple x86 PCs, which Apple forbids.

At the request of Apple's lawyers, the OSx86 Project removed direct links to those patches, the site said.

Another site to those patches, Win2OSX.net, remained down as of Tuesday morning.
