Well, you can already run Mac OS C on some non-Apple hardware, but I am sure
you have come across this, e.g.:

This remains illegal (of course) and Apple are killing the bittorrents, which
encourage piracy (obviating the need for pricey hardware). An intersting
fact to point out is that Michael Dell asked Steve Jobs if he could sell OS
X with Dell hardware. Jobs declined.
