Yep. Its not really worth it.
You end up with a very buggy system that you can't upgrade and most of your drivers don't work right.

Besides, it's against Apple's EULA to install a Mac OS on any "non-Apple-labeled computer".

Thats why i used my label machine to make a sticker that said 'Apple'

I actually bought a license first.
When it didn't work out, I went to my fallback and installed on my iBook G4.

Ummm.... Macs are the pc architechture.
All OS's that work on any other PC will work on macs.
The difference is apple only provides drivers for its own hardware.

Is thelis OK?
I'm gettin worried here.
