    Question Run Official Apple SDK
    You've probably heard this type of story before:

    I have registered as an official apple developer, giving me the official apple SDK. One Problem: I am NOT paying for a mac to run it.

    There are a number of possibilities that I could use. These include:
    taking a copy of Mac OS X and installing it on my PC.
    running the apple sdk 4.0 on Windows (I've no idea where to even start trying this.)
    running the apple sdk on Fedora Core 12 Linux (This does not use Debian APT. Don't ask). (I've got a dual boot.)
    Running a copy of Mac OS X through VMWare.
    Running a copy of Mac OS X through Sun Virtualbox.
    I could run virtualbox on either fedora or Windows, but I'm not sure if it matters.

    If any of these are Possible with a Legit Unhacked, Unopened copy of Mac OS X, Please tell me. I don't want a hacked copy of OS X, because I generally don't trust third-party hackers.

    Posts about virtualizing OS X generally indicate performance is terrible. It is not possible to run XCode under Windows directly. Or Linux.

    So, use a hack to install OS X on a PC in violation of your license, or buy a Mac Mini.

    Default bye the way
    Bye the way, if I ever manage to get the SDK running, will I be able to use it to make hacks? Or does the apple SDK have something built in that doesn't let you install files in in anything other than a .app folder?
