Reports that Apple legal has taken action against a hacker who has been working on OS X for Intel to make it work on other processors appear misplaced.

The OSx86 Project yesterday speculated at Apple action against the hacker.

It was posts and downloads from Maxxuss that spurred Apple to take legal action against the site, citing the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to force it to remove certain links and posts from its forums.

When Maxxuss' own site disappeared it made it seem like Apple may have extended its action.

However, this morning the site reports that the hacker - Maxxuss - has simply launched a new website and blog to share what he find out with others who want to run Mac software on their beige PCs.
