In the last couple months we’ve seen PC manufacturer Psystar offer Mac OS X Leopard with their PC. Apple has sued due to the fact they are not installing on Apple-labeled-hardware. So will DiscCloud have any better chance by taking the OS off the machine? DiscCloud is an appliance that houses the Leopard virtualization software. The appliance runs a Virtual Machine using VMWare Server. You will be able to run Leopard on any x86 system. The company says their process is 100% Apple license compliant. You don’t even need to buy their appliance – All you need is the client application and a VMWare Server. Once installed the company says you will be able to set up a Mac work group in only 5 minutes.
