I think they've become paranoid at this point if they're willing to go to such lengths as to delete content under the mere suspicion that it could be related to another hack community. I was aware of the existence of OSX86.net because it came up on searches when trying to find kext/driver solutions for the odd bit of hardware in my possession, but the only account I had with a hack community at the time was at the Tonymacx86 site as I was very new to the scene. I expect they are reading.
The only good thing that could be said about Tonymacx86 is that they made it easy for first-timers to orient themselves and set up systems. With fewer variables at play it's easier to walk people through setup. They also promote purchasing the OS so that Apple is attributed financially for their product, even if it isn't used as intended by Apple. And the list of good things ends there for me.
I do not accept the notion of those who believe it is acceptable to install OSX on non-Apple branded hardware but that doing so for a monetary gain makes it wrong. Apple lawyers or executives might apply different shades of disapproval to one over the other, but they may come down negatively on any of this. Though it's nice to know that Woz approves.
Whether you're in it for the value of the open source community or the creation of value in the exchange of ideas and labor for money, good on all of you for pursuing your interests. You are all exchanging value, and should be free to do so! If however any of you seek to control the behavior of others by using violence or deception to get your way, there is no moral ground whatsoever in considering such views. Justifying the violation of a license on the premise that you see no direct fiscal gain from the activity in order to moderate against a more litigious Apple is silly. If that's the train of logic people want to use, why not abandon OSX and go straight to linux??
I'm a graphic designer, not a coder or sysadmin, but I still put in the effort to try and learn. I've seen the arguments about how making it easy to set up a Hackintosh is a bad thing, and I cannot agree. Suggesting it is a bad thing because it doesn't promote learning isn't always true for everyone and it assumes a lot. Not everybody has time for or necessarily the interest to know every detail in what is required to make OSX work on a non-Apple branded hardware set, and there's nothing wrong with that. I will not disown my grandmother for desiring an affordable and functional OSX system without having the time or interest to learn how it fully works. In any case this isn't even a valid or primary (IMO) criticism against the Tonymacx86 site as it projects anything made 'easy' as ignorant and harmful when Tonymacx86 is a terrible site for much more important reasons.
To the contrary, I don't expect anyone to tolerate impatient newb mentality and it's individual choice on who you help, or what causes you support. Many of us are experts at our respective fields and know the feeling of being surrounded by newbs and when has this never been the case?
If the Tonymacx86 bundling and rebranding is altogether such a bad thing, I expect someone will eventually out-compete them and provide a better solution. Hopefully in a more ethical manner rather than worse. Show the newcomers that there are alternatives that can be as easy to set up without all the deception and censorship that goes on at Tonymacx86. In any case the newbs who come looking for sites like this at least show some initiative and shouldn't be shunned, IMO. I don't believe for a moment that people with the means to do this are all snobs only willing to help other technically adept individuals... The suppression of information is not all that dissimilar to withholding the benefits of knowledge to people scorned for being 'ignorant'. It's 2013, time to leave the old paradigm of guilds and privileged classes behind already. Win-win outcomes are possible. I do this to create light in the world, not darkness.
