OS X Developer Version Will Run On Any PC

There is nothing at all that prevents the version of Mac OS X that runs on the developer transition machines from running on any PC with compatible components,” Jeff Harrell writes for The Shape of Days. “The Intel-based Power Macintoshes that Apple is showing at their developer conference are based on an Intel motherboard, generic Intel graphics and off-the-shelf Pentium 4 CPUs… I estimate that we?re down to a matter of hours before Mac OS X 10.4.1 for Intel hardware is available for download on Internet software piracy sites and peer-to-peer piracy networks.

Supposedly the new developer version of OS X for Intel has already made its way to some piracy sites, but a quick search of the ones I know of turned up nothing.

There are also reports that a version of the iLife application suite is bundled with the Intel Developer version of Mac OS X.
