Hackintosh Install: Why does everyone say you should buy a copy of Mac OSX?

I've been reading a lot lately about Hackintosh - I never knew it existed!


One theme I've seen in just about every website I read, everyone says: please buy the Mac OSX software to do the install


Why is this?

Given that the whole process is 'allegedly' illegal, then why would someone go to the bother of buying the software when they can just download?

(Of course, you have to know where you can download from)


I just found it strange that this message seemed to be universal: please buy the software


What am I missing?


Does a purchased version come with a serial number or something that is required for the installation?
