Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The OSx86 Project has re-activated its forum after the virtual bulletin board's Apple-induced absence made headlines last week. The project's leaders confirmed that it was indeed the Mac maker's lawyers who'd asked them to remove content that allegedly infringed the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

What content? Links to hacker Maxxuss' website, home of the patch posted last week that allows owners of generic x86 PCs to install and boot Mac OS X 10.4.4. The patch was made available just before Apple released Mac OS X 10.4.5 and prevented it from working. The links have now been removed, the OSx86 Project website says.

Maxxuss' 10.4.4 patch in particular appears to have provoked Apple's ire - not surprisingly given what it's supposed to do and that it bypasses the company's own copy-protection mechanisms, including the use of a Trusted Platform Module on new, Intel-based Macs. ®
