DIY X = Hackintosh??

I'm getting tons of requests on Twitter and FaceBook and user forums for Videoguys to do a DIY Hackintosh guide. I'm not sure if we can pull this one off, and I'm also quite concerned about getting sued by Apple if we do it. I got a TON of heat from Cupertino back in June of 2011 when I called it like I saw it, and predicted the Fiasco that FCPX would be. Apple was abandoning Professional Post and our blog article "Videoguys' Options for Final Cut Editors" got tremendous traction on the internet, Twitter and Facebook. I updated the article after FCPX released and then after the first update "FCPX is getting better, but still has a long way to go. Videoguys' Options for Final Cut Editors".
We love Apple and we love Apple products. I just wish they would give us what we want, a new Mac Pro that would take advantage of all the latest technology. I'm drooling over the Mac Book Pro with Retina display. Why the heck won't Apple give us the Mac Pro of our NLE dreams? Multiple Thunderbolt and USB3 ports, eSata, NVIDIA graphics and the very latest Ivy Bridge chips?!?
Well if Apple won't give professional editors the workstation they need, who will?
