    I would absolutely not recommend a hackintosh as your daily driver. Hackintoshes always sound great in theory, but never turn out well in practice (in my experience, but also in experience of a few friends of mine). Sound issues, random kernel panics, the guarantee that your entire system will probably not work anymore if you do a update are some of the reasons I switched my home rig back to Windows. And yes, all parts of my setup were considered 'approved'.

      After building a hackintosh with Tonymax86 recommended hardware, this is pretty much exactly how I felt. I had issues with audio, sleep, messages, etc, and just never felt satisfied with the performance and stability of the machine.

      I run Windows 10 on it now, and while I'm not a huge fan of the OS, I'm much happier with the it overall.
