Um.. You'll need a Mac to use Mac OS X, and since all Macs are shipped with the OS preinstalled, there's not really such a thing as a trial. :)

There are other ways to go about it though, if one knows how to use Google and isn't afraid of violating the EULA, or copyright laws. :roll:

no need to tripple post.
yes it can be run on PC but PC and MAC are different even though they are computers.
due to your lack of knowledge of computers i HIGHLY doubt you will get it running on a pc. it requires a lot of driver tweaking and common sense. not everyone's hardware will work on it.
as for google, if you want to know any answer in the world GOOGLE IT!
in 2 seconds i found like 1000 sites relating to your question

There is a version of Mac OS X for Intel processors but it will only run on Macs as it looks for the Trusted Platform Module inside them that tells them that it's a Mac. However, there are hacked versions of OS X that will run on a normal PC; searching any BitTorrent site will get you the DVD image that you need to install it. It won't run on all PCs though: your processor must support at least the SSE2 instruction set. Also because OS X is only designed for Macs, it may lack some drivers that your system needs.

You're surely not expecting us to be helping you with something that's clearly illegal, are you?. :roll: And PCs and Macs are different you know, although not that much as they were initially anymore. As it has already been said, google for it, and you'll find the answer.

No more discussion on where to actually get OS X for Intel, please. This is warez.
