Legal When PsyStar announced they would be offering their own Macintosch clone, pre-installed with Apple's Mac OS X Leopard, they opened up a whole can of worms. Despite the fact that the company itself was shrouded in mystery and dubiousness, the possible implications of their actions sparkled an interesting debate here on OSNews as well as other discussion venues: can PsyStar and its users just discard Apple's End User License Agreement for Leopard? Instead of relying on my own limited layman's understanding of Dutch Common Law, I decided to contact Dutch legal experts, and ask for their opinions on Apple's EULA, and EULAs in general.

Yep, there is that law prohibiting joint sales. Probably one of the least enforced in France. Just try to buy a computer without Windows installed. Tell the seller it is illegal to force you to buy Windows (or OS X for that matter).

I tried. I even found a seller who accepted to take out the hard disk and put another one without Windows. But the computer without Windows ended costing a lot more than the computer with Windows.
