Every article I find concerning whether the OS-X X86 AMD version can run or not on a SSE processor are all dated about 1996.  There is nothing new in the last 6 months that addresses this question / problem.

If anyone has any RECENT info on whether the SSE hurdle has been overcome in the last 6 months or so, please let me know.  No guesses, just recent definitive articles !!  Thanks.

You can't legally run OS X on anything other than a Mac computer, pursuant the the Apple EULA.

"... activities which would violate...."

Totally unwarranted assumption / erroneous prejudgment.  The goal is knowledge.  
"No guesses, just recent definitive articles !!"  What could be clearer than that?

No -- the correct answer is this -- I found it out with further internet research --

"There is no substantial change since 1996.  It is still not possible on an SSE chip without emulation, and the emulation is so slow, it is essentially unusable anyway."

That's it, so simple, all of which is available on the net, it just took a lot of sifting through articles, 99% of which were opinions based on hearsay, not facts.  That's true of most web blogs.  

Anyway, this is the correct answer, if anyone is interested, for learning's sake.  Of course I'd like this information post to stay on EE, simply to save others the hassle I went through.  But it is up to you.
