Oh, tonymacwannabex86 vs. the not-that-popular-anymore distro!
Just was googling around and stumbled across a post as to why tonymacwannabe doesn't support distros. The OP made me laugh at this part:
DO NOT INSTALL THESE THINGS: Installing a hacked operating system onto your computer risks your personal information and your precious data. Anything could be in these .isos- keyloggers, spambots, viruses, who knows.
Yeah, because cybercriminals have smartened up their resources and have now realized the best way to infect computers is to put their malware in the ever-so-popular OSx86 distros! That's what everyone is doing today instead of MS Windows piracy and WGA cracks!!
And if the Hackintosh scene has "evolved" as they said, distros would be more so a n00b's resort. It wouldn't be that hard to create one. All one would have to do is download Mavericks from the app store, run the install image script, install a bootloader, modify OSinstall.mpkg to include post-install kexts installation, and slap the modded install image on some piracy site.
Plus, the mention of spambots? If a spambot got ahold of Tonymacwannabex86's registration page, a user could find themselves unable to logon due to their clever IP blacklisting method for banned users. Not to mention how many bots on that wannabe's forum ban the odd user more often than YouTube's content ID flagging false positives.
And, to top it all off, we have the n00bs who replied to that thread saying things like "Why use distros when Unimonster and Multimonster can load an official OS copy much better?" Yeah, because it's not like that wannabe Tony infringed the copyright of other developers when developing Unimonster. Oh, wait: MyHack...
Don't get me wrong: I have legally purchased copies of Mountain Lion and Leopard (that's right, version 10.5.6), so I don't really use distros all that much anymore. While the OSx86 scene has changed a lot since the prevalence of distros, Hackintoshes are only getting better without that Chimealong Chameleon rippoff. I mean, now we're using modded bios to host the bootloader in the firmware! Tony, with all his progress in helping the scene would have come up with that idea (or steal the code from the developer) in, let's see... Never!
And with that, let's never use distros because of all the malware people are loading in them... NOT!!!
