Installing Mac OS X on a non-Mac is a violation of the license agreement. Apart from the obvious capitalistic reasons, Mac OS X remains tied to Mac hardware because the hardware has very refined support. By using it on non-Mac hardware, you're introducing variables and bugs that have already been solved for Macs. Mac OS X is essentially a very optimized Unix that relives the old days of Unix where there was a Unix for each architecture and none of them were very interoperable.
"UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity."
