In short, the Mac OS X EULA prohibits the installation of the operating system onto non-Apple machines, which according to the terms of the EULA terminates your license and therefore your legal right to use the software. There is an ongoing legal battle regarding this, but we must abide by any 'reasonable' (a term defined by the courts) EULA unless it is ruled unenforceable. Otherwise the argument would be that it's permissible to break any agreement if you disagree with the terms, making EULAs, contracts, etc. meaningless. As a result, although Hackintosh topics may be discussed on the show they are not permitted here in the forums, which are governed by a different set of rules, at this time.
