Maybe I souldn't bring up ideas like that ;)

But what if Apple would try to hire Maxxuss for their TPM security and stuff like that to prevent users like us from using OSX on our PCs?

If Maxxuss doesn't have a good job it would be tempting, they must offer great salary, I'm wondering if he would take the job?

Well, patching OSX would probably occur even if he's not there but would probably take much longer!

Haha - I love this thread!

Maxxuss is certainly capable enough to be hired by Apple!

Am I the only one paranoid enough to think he has been working for Apple all along?

But who tells us, he isn't already an Apple employee? With his knowledge within the house, buying Apple finally makes sense . . .

I know we like to use OSX x86 on PC and Maxxuss is of GREAT help but i think if he has a job like lets say: McDonalds :) he would be stupid not to take a job from Apple! Even if he has a good job like 20$ (CAN) an hour.

I'm wondering... what's the average salary (per hour) of a programmer at Apple?

but if he did how would we all get to enjoy Apple OS? Obviously the majority of us do this because we can't live without XP and can't afford Macs. I hope Apple just gives up and makes the OS for x86 ahrdware Intel or AMD, just put "Made for Tiger x86" stickers on the hardware. Honestly though this is sort of a test, if I really dig the OS and some of the software, iLife, iWorks, etc, I will go buy a Mini. So in some ways this can be seen as a "trial" to get more switching. Or maybe Ill wait till the x86 Mac is released. Either way I'm close to giving Apple some money.

Quite honestly, if I were Maxxuss, I wouldn't care about everyone in this forum. :) If I were him/her, I would have just done it to get Mac on my own computer.

Now, if I were Steve Jobs, I would give Maxxuss a lot of money to work for me. Think about it. By paying Maxxuss a large sum of money for finding holes, the likelihood of x86 Tiger becoming cracked decreases, therefore increasing the likelihood of someone buying a real Mac, therefore making me richer! :(

Maxxuss is Steve Wozniak. He was looking for an opportunity to get back at Jobs for a long time. Now he's found the right challenge.

A couple of million THANKS Woz on behalf of the osx86 community... :)

I don't really know his history, but I'm guessing that he is either a former Apple employee, or perhaps even a current one. That, or he is extremely impressive at learning the in's and out's of OSX86.

<Thats a stupid story>

Maxxuss' goal is to destroy Apple and Steve Jobs and the only way he found to get to him is to crack his code util Jobs can't take it anymore and tries to find Maxxuss. Then Maxxuss will kidnap Jobs and force him to give us OSX for every PC.

</Thats a stupid story>

nx was patched to not enable....it was a joint effort.

i doubt maxxuss would work for apple, everyone has a set of ethics. personally i would never work for a company who's DRM i'm breaking and having them ask me to fix their broken DRM. DRMs are the result of the de-evolution of software and turning to script kiddy tactics to protect a few bytes of data. Doesn't mean I wouldn't turn down a job from other companies to work on security. DRM is just {censored}.

I agree with that!

Maybe we should ask maxxus to teach us!!! That would be really really really great.... a couple of papers, how-to's, faq's ....
