I just read over at MacDailyNews that a x86 version of Mac OS X 10.4.1 Tiger has been leaked. It is said that this copy of Mac OS X Tiger for Intel is already listed on various piracy sites on the Web and that it is also spreading through torrents and p2p networks.
Keep in mind that this is a rumour. I have yet seen any real evidence that Mac OS X Tiger for Intel hardware has been leaked. There are some screenshots of Mac OS X x86 downloads and photos of PCs running Mac OS X but those can be faked quite easy.
MacDailyNews suggests that Apple might have secretly leaked the OS to give potential future customers a free taste of a full speed Mac OS X running on their own PC hardware. But I doubt they would do this as there would be almost no driver support for various types of hardware for instance. A half-running OS wouldn't be good promotion for Apple.
