I don't believe Apple.

I think the reason they will not allow people to install Mac OS X on 
non-Apple computers
is because Apple computers are very expensive, and once they allow 
people to install their OS on
other hardware they fear people will stop buying their machines.

That is exactly why I bought Mac OS 10.6 and run it inside VMware Player 
in a second hand DELL Optiplex 745
with 6 Gigs of RAM, which cost me, in total, 300 Euros . . .

( 100 for the computer, 100 for another 4 Gigs of RAM, 100 for the 
wide-screen monitor )

. . . and exactly why Apple don't like people like me, because a 
bottom-of-the range 21.5 inch iMac costs
about 1,269 Euros.

I don't expect an support from Apple; which is just as well, as they 
won't give me anything except a boot
up the nether regions!
