,----[ Quote ]
| The adapter promised to take a computer built from standard PC components 
| and allow Mac OS X to be installed on it, without the usual patching and 
| tweaking required for a regular âHackint0shâ.  However, as one EFI-X owner 
| has discovered, it seems the company did little more than repackage 
| Chameleon/Boot-132 bootloader code onto a DRM-encrypted USB stick.

| trailblazing GNU GPL.

| GPL.
