Who cares what Apple's about to announce? It owes us a macOS x86 virtual appliance for non-Mac computers

I’ve been running a hackintosh with server app for years, some great resources available.

I’ve not bothered to update it from high Sierra and I’m literally retiring it this week in favour of running what I need in docker on Ubuntu.

Would love an arm Mac mini with 64gb ram to run all my virtual loads in the future.

Will be great to see what we get today.

Apple have been making a thing of security and coupling the intel mads with T series processors that handle cryptography and ssd encryption. That doesn’t virtualise well.

Hackintosh works around that but a future OS X vm will need some kind of hardware added to Mac it run officially.

Also Apple doesn’t charge for its os.
